    I'd just add to the previous comments that it doesn't hurt to give it a go. You will never know unless you try, and then try and try some more. Many myths have been busted by those with the curiosity to see how far they can push the boundaries. Small lowii can be obtained cheaply, so it can't hurt.

    If it grows well, you get quite a few years pleasure out of it before it will need a bigger space.

    Yeah, but if you want to 'push the boundaries' you shouldn't be trying to push anything too ridiculous through (e.g. like growing villosa in 30*C nights). Or maybe, if all other conditions were perfect..... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Im not trying to scare him off growing nepenthes. I just suggest that he should try easier species first. I mean its funnier to have a thriving N.sanguinea or N.ventricosa then a struggeling N.lowii.
    But ok I wont say anything anymore then.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    THANK YOU fc3srx713b!!!!!!!! i have "tested" other varieties. ventricosa(died beacuse temps were too high I think...) a raff(died of low humidity when i first got it,before i got my terrarium[odd i know]) and sangunie(spelling?)(also died of too high of temps). I got all three for 14 bucks so it wasnt a huge loss but i think im gonna refrain from highlanders until i get another terrarium that i can suit for highlanders. Thanks to those who understand me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] (just kidding all others too)
