    I think platychila will be pretty popular once the price drops to a reasonable level. I agree, though. Jac is a better buy since platys do their pitchers like eymae (rather typical spotty lowers w/ spectacular uppers).

    Yeah my N. jacquelineae does wonderful in my highland GH which is about 75F to 80F in the day time in the summer. It will cool off to about 55 to 60 at night.

    Thanks

    Greetings,

    I was recently in the same position. I wanted a lowii hybrid. N. lowii x truncata was available so I chose that one. I anticipate that it will grow quite well under intermediate conditions. I would have also been equally satisfied with N. lowii x ventricosa or N. lowii x veitchii...they are all beautiful.

    Any lowii hybrid will probably get very large, so that is another thing to take into consideration. I just built a very large chamber and it's going to have only 5 plants in it. I want room for them to grow to their full potential.

    Get a N. x Medusa
    This plant looks almost exactly like N. sibuyanansis, but tolerates warmer temps.
    Mine is growing in a lowland terrerium that dosn't go under 70f.
    It's doing great.

    lowii x truncata will increase in size very quickly. It's mind boggling, considering the slow speed of its parents.

    Lowii x veitchii has proven an easy a fast grower for me, even faster than lowii x truncata. Here are a couple of pics of the most recently opened pitcher:

    I've just bought a plant of stenophylla x veitchii, a hybrid that looks pretty cool in 'Neps of Borneo'.
    I wonder if it does the leaf wrap-around thing?
    Cheers,
    Tony.
