    EP's Spectabilis x (Lowii x Ventricosa)

    When I first received this plant I wasn't all that impressed but I figured it would get better with time. It turns out I was right and EP never fails. I thought it looked very similar to Spectabilis x Ventricosa when I first received it, but the newest pitcher has become a darker red and the mouth seems to be growing like Lowii. I will be so stoked if this thing continues to take on more Lowii characteristics as it ages, while maintaining Spectabilis' coloration.

    Great looking plant. Any hair appendages underneath the lid?

    Thanks guys . It actually is quite an easy plant, and I think this may be in part due to the ventricosa in it. I have had some variable heat fluctuations in the past month or so and the plant doesn't seem stressed at all. Unfortunately there is no hair appendages yet, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Daniel - hairs really would be the icing on that fantastic cake.

    Hey Daniel. good growing. Any updates? I'm starting to get back into the swing of things here. Mine kinda languished the past year, but here they are now:
    I've got one that's tan and red:


    and a darker red one:


    but I'm thinking this little skinny one shows the most promise:


    Did you pick up any of the other crosses with (lowii x ventricosa)?
