    Wow, everyones plants look so great! This has to be my favorite Nepenthes species, can't wait until I have conditions that are suitable for one ... About how tall do/can they get? they seem rather compact/rosett growing, is this true?

    One could consider them a dwarf species IMHO
    @Myles it developed at that angle oddly enough.

    My third nep: N. lowii X campanulata

    I got a rooted cutting in May.


    In brief 3 months, it has slowly edged its way to become one of my favorites




    I find that the pitchers are sturdier and longer lasting than N. campanulata, even the young pitchers are thicker-walled than the mature pitchers of my campanulata. Surprisingly, it appears to be more heat tolerant than my campys. In these respects, this hybrid is a definite improvement from its campanulata parent. I'm looking forward to see it mature.

    Here's a group shot with my two campys. (My young all-green campanulata is painfully slow to grow...)

    So campanulata doesn't like the heat?? Thought they were LL plants.

    Your camps are looking nice

    Campanulata is most definitely a lowland plant. My guess is that the "heat tolerance" that hardy is experiencing is more an effect of hybrid vigor.

    by definition yes, campanulata is a LL, if LL refers to altitude constraints. however, campanulata does grow on cliff walls to nearby waterfalls, which does help lower the ambient temperature significantly.

    Can we see some robc x campy? I'm curious as to how others are turning out, I'll post pictures of mine when the next pitcher pops.
