    Thank you for the comments everyone . It's too bad the plant is just bleached =( I was really hoping for some variegation, even if just a little. Unfortunately both shipments combined did cost me a small fortune lol. Over 2700$ IIRC. It's totally worth it though, as EP hybrids are just too amazing. I will try to get some pics up of the lowii hybrids today, but they aren't really showing many traits at this young age. A lot of the pitchers are just small and dark for now, though all the Lowii x Campanulatas seem to be very nice looking. The available Lowii hybrids should all turn out quite amazing: Lowii x Campanulata , Lowii x Boschiana and Lowii x Spectabilis. Also, the Veitchii H/L x Eymaes should all turn out quite nice too as well as the Truncata x Ephipiatas. I definitely recommend everyone try to pick up some of these EP hybrids while they are available. Thanks again for the comments, and I will definitely try to get some pics up of the Lowii hybrids later today.

    Thanks Varun! Lol I'm not sure if it's dedication or excessive splurging. I had a couple things I wanted to buy, but as usual, CP's got the best of me lol.

    M Jacobs asked for a couple pics of the Lowii hybrids, so I figured I would finally upload a couple pics since I had some spare time right now. Unfortunately they are all small and fairly non-descript, but all the Lowii x Campanulatas still seem to have some interesting features to them even at a young age. I suspect the lowii x spectabilis' and the Lowii x Boschianas will look real nice given time though. Right now they are just dark and immature, but in time, they should show some nice characteristics.

    Lowii x Campanulata:




    Lowii x Boschiana:




    Lowii x Spectabilis (this one isn't fully opened, but the other pitchers that came with the plant were already blackened and dying by the time i received them.


    And another shot of Maxima x (Stenophylla x Lowii) x (Rokko x Veitchii):


    I'll definitely try to update this post in a few months/year when things start taking off .

    I'm curious about campanulata x lowii as well. Such different pitcher structure and growth habits.
