    Unhappy

    Hello again,
    On one of my recent topics I asked if lowii was an ok candidate for a Highland terrarium. The answer i was given was no...what is the reason for this size, or requirements of humidity and temperature. I am strongly looking forward to buying one so I need insight first.

    Thanks
    Gider

    Just buy one if your temps and humidity are alright. It wont be outgrowing the terarium any time soon [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] .

    Keep in mind, if you expect to see N. lowii's famous pitchers, expect to wait at least 5-10 years, and that's in perfect growing conditions!

    They didn't nick name it "slowii" for nothing, ya know.

    I don't think size was the reason someone cautioned against it in a highland terrarium - LOL is right about that. Might be because of the other plants you have in there? Did you mention what those were? Lowii is a true highlander - I've heard it called ultra highland before (though I think that may be extreem). The point is that it may require cooler night temps than other plants you plan to grow.
