    I grow all neps as intermediates, except petiolata and pasian highland truncata, which experience extremely high temps in the summer, then no temp drop at all, then a season of extremely low temps, and they do fine.

    N. lowii can get big but it takes a real long time to do it (as everyone has pointed out, it is real slow.) And Clint, I call it slowii too

    As rattler mentioned, ease of growth is going to be different for different people. I have no trouble growing lowii so long as I don't expect too much from it (like more than 1 pitcher in a 6 month period.) If you are willing to over look the slow nature then give it a try. If you want something that grows faster than a turtle on barbituates stampeeding through molasses then I suggest you look else where

    I've been growing N. lowii for a while now as an intermediate and it's actually settled in faster than any of my other Neps. It also isn't all that slow, which is odd considering all the fuss I've heard about it.

    Now on the other hand, I've been having the hardest time growing N. inermis. I do think it's due to some overwatering on my part though, so I'm letting it dry out a bit before it gets any more.

    Perhaps one day I'll get Nep watering right. It's such a problem for me

    Hi there:

    I'd try N. sanguinea, N. ventricosa, N. carunculata, N. mira, N. mikei, N. truncata (even though a lowlander it grows well in cold weather) and most hybrid highland X lowland combinations would do fine.

    Thank you!

    You can all expect that I'll be ready to trade whenever I get some extras anything.

    I looked at some nep vendors and it looks like N. ampullaria is really expensive
