    I think that lowii's reputation, along with that of N. rajah, is a bit unfair. Whilst it is slower than many species, it is not all that slow when grown in ideal conditions. Further, the larger it gets the faster it grows.

    Lowii from Trus Madi gets extremely large. The variants from Mulu and Murud are considerably smaller. The Kinabalu for is somewhere in between. Those are the main varieties in cultivation, but lowii, like ephippiata, has a much broader geographical distribution than previously realised.

    Anyway, it would be good in a terrarium for several years. Once it matures though, it would need a greenhouse or much larger set-up.

    I was thinking the Mulu one cause i knew it was smaller than the normal Lowii. Dont underestimate my terrarium my friends. ITS HUGE. i think the dimensions are 18inx18inx24in so its not very small [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] i am a realy random person going from one thing to the next(lowland to highland) and its usually not the best thing to do so im back to lowlanders along with drosera pings and VFTs

    not to be negative or anything but thats not large by any stretch, im using a space thats about 18 inches deep by 42 inches long by 24 inches high and im short on room and i only have 11neps(3 of which are quite small), 4 Utrics and a couple orchids and im out of room and trying to fugure out how to get more. my eymae x veitchii is over a foot in diameter leaf tip to leaf tip as is my amp. the amp has started to vine so the 24 inches of hieght isnt tall enough. unless your starting with small plants or keeping real slow growers you will actually run out of room faster than you think if your keeping more than 2 or 3 neps.

    lol well i have no new pics but heres an old one from early summer. the eymae x veitchii, veitchii, amp and Ile de France are bigger. i have since added my hamata, aristo and lowii(all in 3 inch pots and range from tiny to small. the humidifier was taken out and 2 vanilla orchids and one other sit in its place.



    here is a shot of the whole stand. my wife hates how it looks and says i need to make sides out of plexi so it looks better. havent had time to do that yet.

    Glider.. considering your comment, your posts and your lack of experience I would not suggest you to grow N.lowii it would be a waist of money. Im not being rude here this is just facts.
    You said you had problems getting a N.ventrata for pithcer.

    Then its like you have just managed to build a bicycle that dont work and now you are trying to build a car.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    no offence Tyfone but ive gotten ventrata to pitcher in 20% humidity and it doesnt pitcher in the setup i just posted a picture of. being that any lowii he is going to find is going to be a tc plant, who really cares if its an experiment? its his money and his time. its best to learn by doing.

    No problem Rattler you are probably right. I just wanted to tell him that he shouldnt be expecting to much.
