    Lowii with the spikes: how rare?

    I've kinda become attracted to the lowii with the spikes coming down from the top. Are these rare and expensive? Can someone send me a PM if you know where I can get one?

    all lowii look like that. theyre not rare and not very expensive (relatively...if you compare it to jac, hamata, etc)

    Yea I saw pics of ones that have that shape of a wine glass. Do they all have that too? I don't like them too much.

    those are the uppers of lowii. dont worry. if you got a plant it would be YEARS before it starts to vine and make uppers. i think the uppers are absolutly beautiful!

    Wine glass shaped uppers could also be telling you a different species. N. lowii more resembles an hourglass shape, a wine glass would be like N. inermis or N. eymae (infundibuliformis).
