    Hi all:

    Muluensis X lowii is a superb hybrid. Usually muluensis tends to be a very tricky species to grow since it requires true highland conditions to grow the way it's supposed to!. But this hybrid makes possible for most beginners who live in temperate climates to grow this amazing plant.

    Muluensis x lowii is a trooper! But a slow one at that. I get 1 new leaf every 3 - 4 weeks. And some heat stress ever since the pitchering started. But still... a trooper nevertheless. It thrives while my ramispina is threatening to croak on me.

    It just sits on top of my PC in my bedroom. It's actually very convenient. When I find stray flying insects milling around on my table, I can dispose of them straight into the pitcher and feel pleased that nothing is wasted!

    Hi there:

    well, they do OK at high temperatures during the day, but they do like their cool nights and decent humidity levels. It's slow but rewarding

    I have 3 pitchers simultaneously inflating at any one time on mine. So, I'd say it's slow. And it takes over a month to go from green to black pitcher.

    I have one that I got in the NASC auction 2 years ago. It's first pitcher just opened. This is one sloooow growing plant for me. It grows along with my other highlanders outside and they are all popping out new pitchers and flower stalks but this Muluensis x lowii is real slooow.
