    Hi guys

    Sooo i again will be getting a lowii if the supplier actually has one....So any of you got any tips for it?? Really appreciate your help..I'm gonna put it in my highland terr..Temps in the day are around 27-30C and nights around 13-15C Humidity is a problem for me i can't seem to have any higher humidity other then 75+% day humidity is around 65 and above most probally around 70% Because the terr is in the house the humidity doesn't move much...So any tips?

    your humidity is likely fine.....other than being a rather slow grower, so long as it gets a dip in temps at night i havent heard of it being especially difficult.....ive got some rather small ones at the moment that are happily growing with less of a temp drop than you have......

    i grew mine as an intermediate for the first....5 months or so i had it. and it grew and pitchered fine.
    but now im growing it as an ultrahighland plant and its slowii reputation is starting to show...id just give it average highland conditions, and a good airy soil mix.
    good growing

    Hi guys

    So i guess since my temps are typical highland conditions and so are the humidity then okay thanks pics of it will help and appreciated.....So when will it start showing the constricted pitchers other then the normal young pitcher?

    the humidity is fine.....as for when it will do the constricted pitchers.......depends on the size of your plant now but be prepared to wait.....its going to be prolly 4 or 5 years, maybe longer......least thats my guess, i know its going to be a long darn time before i see them on my lil plants......but thats why yah have other plants, makes the waiting on one more bearable........

    N. lowii is a beautiful thing! It seems to be a fairly slow grower for everyone. For me the Mt. Kinabulu form grows the quickest, but I don't know if this is a geographical variation or just the particular clone. Glad to see seedlings such as those shown by rattler. This may lead to more vigorous plants.

    On a somewhat different subject, take a look at Manders' chart, if you haven't already. Of course it's just some general guidelines, but what I find most interesting is that some plants that should be difficult in my conditions thrive and outperform plants that should be "easier". Anyway, I appreciate Manders putting this info together and sharing it.

    Oops! Sorry I made that assumption, rattler.
