    That's one hell of a score man!

    I'd love to have bought that thing but I have no where large enough to keep it currently. Are the leaves truncata shaped?

    Is it HL or LL or Intermediate?

    Hey swords, the leaves are very much like a truncata with a bit more length to them

    Here is my smaller lowii x truncata, this one is the wide peristome cross but the leaves are similar, albeit a much more scaled down version right now... Though a fast grower in comparison to either of it's parents, this plant went from a 3" plant on arrival to what you see now in less than a year... Around 10 months actually.


    In regards to their growth preference for temps, i would assume intermediate or H/L

    Thanks! That is an interesting leaf shape between the two. Nice it grows faster than either parent too - both being such slow pokes.

    Those huge pitchers Lazarus showed were really amazing did he say how big they were? Also, does he know the sex of your plant?

    No he does not know the sex sadly since it never flowered before he cut it back... I think I saw him post somewhere at some time saying the size of his largest trap, but I can't recall...

    The inside of the pitcher is simply stunning!

    Not sure what it was about his photography, but all the plants seem smaller than they appeared. After cutting away the dead traps and dead leaves from the truncata x veitchii, There wasn't much left other than 5 growth points.

    I thought Id ask here is there any difference from Lowii X Truncata "Wide Peristome" other than a wide peristome? Would the color be the same beautiful artwork as an adult Lowii X truncata? Also, what about Lowii X Truncata "squat" ?


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Then wide peristome and squat refer to the forms of truncata used, so I imagine they will look a bit different, but I won't know until my wide peristome cross gains more size, similar to my original cross...
