Refer to the following site for information on N. treubiana natrual habitat

http://www.sunbellee...s_treubiana.htm

I find quite a few similarities to the natural habitat of another Nepenthes which also grows on limestone cliffs which does well in IBE.

I would say this nepenthes will like the following

1) Plenty of direct sunlight all day
2) cooling conditions[due to winds, not aircon]
3) plenty of air circulation
4) very well draining media
5) humidity


Experiment with your media. Each of us here have experimented with different media to match our growing conditions.
