    Well, after lurking for a couple years now Ive decided to come out and show some of my plants. Excuse my novice photographic skill, I am learning.



    1. This is my 4x3x2.5ft lowland setup I built close to a year ago. There are 8 40 watt fluoros, I am considering moving to a 250 watt HID bulb, probably MH. The bottom half isnt as dark as it appears in the picture.


    2. The damaged northiana.


    3.Bad pitcher close-up.


    4.My new favorite N. Lowii x truncata growing in true lowland conditions.


    5. My favorite picture so far of the lowii x truncata.


    6. Bical growing happily in the dim second half


    7. This is the same bical from the previous picture, the Raff is huge!


    Well, that is all for now from Chapel Hill. Hope you enjoyed
    David

    Nice stuff man! That's one thing I found with N. northiana, to get really great pitchers the leaves usually end up sunburned/pigmented from hgh light conditions but I'd rather have sunburned leaves with great pitchers than pretty leaves and sub-awesome pitchers! Is that N. rafflesiana giant Clone BE99? It's a great plant!

    Great looking setup and plants! N. lowii x truncata is one of my favorite hybrids, too.
    Thanks for sharing and good growing,

    U may be novice photographically, but not in growing. Anyone who can grow a northiana and BE-99 (w/ freakin huge pitchers) has my respect (and I'm in the real lowland, darnit). Those two are the slowest things on the planet.

    What are your temps? My brother will be plsed to know that the lowii x trunc. can grow in lowland (that is if your place is really lowland).

    Gorgeous pitcher ludwig! what a peristome. My conditions in the terrarium are mid 80s during the day to mid-upper 70s at night. In the summer if the house is warm the terrarium can easily get into the 90s but the plants dont mind at all.
    The BE-99 is a monster and it loves light. One of my favorite aspects of this plant is that, when in bright light, the newly opened leaves are gorgeous copper/maroon color.

    Thanks for all your kind replies,
    David

    How long have you kept your lowii x truncata in these conditions? Was that pitcher fully formed while in these conditions?
