    Lowland is by far faster ten highland.
    But you cant really measure the rate of pitchers coming out.
    It has to many things involved.
    Like a full thriving highland plant can grow by far more pitchers then a beat up lowland and vice versa..
    Need all the experience I can get...

    'rokko' is about the quickest ive delt with though 'ile de france' isnt far behind as is 'ventrata'. my veitchii is almost painfully slow at inflating pitchers though it produces leaves at a good rate. if yah want quick growth and lots of pitchers quick most hybrids would be a better choice than species. basically it depends on what YOU like. i grow about a dozen different neps(mostly species with a few hybrids) at the moment so there is always something new to see every week. makes it nice so that your not staring at your single nep trying to will it to grow faster. as far as highland versus lowland both can grow quick but i would be more interested in finding species and hybrids that will grow well in my present conditions with minimal work rather than trying to do lots of work to get your growing area to suit plants that might not grow well, know what i mean?

    Most all hybrids grow fast or so I've heard. I think its called hybrid vigor. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    fast compared to what? i have an amp, growing in intermediate conditions that is growing faster than most anything else. yes the hybrid vigor is pretty much true but some of the species are far from slow pokes, atleast as mature plants.

    thorelli X aristolochioides: I have a plant which produced 4 separate vines, keeps on producing upper pitchers without the tendrils entangling into anything, and 2 out of the 4 vines have flower spikes!.
    This plants grows well in winter, but it goes berserk in summer. What else can i say. it's a vigorous beast

    I'm with Gus! My thorelli x aristolochioides is the fastest grower in my collection, with basals, vines, pitchers, the whole works. Also, N. x Manny Herrera (mirabilis x khasiana) is a monster grower; it takes the inches/week title as it's internode length is about five inches.
