    yeah, it's true. a N. lowii for trade. it's G. Trus Madi with a 3-4" inch leaf span with numerous tendril swells and one put-out pitcher. it is seed grown from Borneo with foilage, tendrils and pitchers that are unbelievably woody and solid for a younger plant. showing the hairs under the lid and each new tendril swell looks like it will be promising more than the one before it and there is atleast four.

    picture of the Nepenthes lowii taken a few days ago(looks only better now)

    now, reason for trading off this plant is that i simply do not have the money to build a highland grow chamber and i want the best for this plant and i know most of you here could give it a good home.

    i will look at any nepenthes offers. what i am looking for in particular though is a Nepenthes bicalcarata. yeah, i know most bicalcarata are fifteen dollar plants and this is a more expensive plant but as i said before, it isn't about value, it's about finding a better home for this fine specimen as it may be growing well in my current environment, but as schloaty said, it will eventually suffer and stress in it.

    i'd prefer a colorful version of bicalcarata but any bicalcarata offer has a good chance of getting this lowii. but other nep offers are more than welcomed but i am more likely to trade with you if i were to see a picture of the plant. but, send offers away.

    thanks.

    i would've sworn someone would've taken to this offer and spared a bicalcarata (which i prefer to be a smaller specimen that is past the juvenile phase but isn't large) for this lowii.

    hmm, did i mention there is a lowii seedling that comes along with it? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    well, make an offer mate, if someone with a bicalcarata doesn't show up soon, whomever has the most interesting offer gets it.

    Well I don't have any extra rooted neps except the ones you already have. I'm not having much luck with this batch of cuttings so I don't want to send any out. Though if you have any other seedings you want to trade I have some other stuff.
