    I don't think pure lowii's would like your climate (at least during the summer), especially if it gets dry. I don't grow them, but I hear that they are fine in slightly warm temps, but don't like the temps getting much past 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It would help to know where you plan to grow your Nepenthes.

    Setting up a large terrarium with some lights in a cool basement might be a good option if you want to grow Nepenthes, at least until they get big.

    I use to grow all my plants on a southwest facing windowsil with good success. I had lowii x boschiana there for a few years as well. They grow consistently but not super fast. If you have any questions let me know!

    Any photos? Where did you get it? What was your climate? Did you grow it outside at all? Wow, that was a lot of questions.

    temp usually hovered around 65 to 70 depending on the time of the year and I never grew them outside and I don't think you'd have much success with them there honestly. I grew it via tray method and typically watered it when it dried out. The photo is one from when it grew in a grow tent I switched to in order to grow more plants.

    That plant is amazing, truly amazing. But, if it can't handle my temps, I'll try a different hybrid. Thanks a million for the help.

    Warm temperatures hovering around the 70's at night will probably suit really hardy or lowland-cross lowii hybrids only; pure lowii definitely won't like those conditions, and they're slow as heck from what everyone says (yet to grow one myself, but one day). N. lowii x campanulata as mentioned earlier might be a viable choice, or x merrilliana, but also as mentioned lowii hybrids in general are expensive and often sell out quickly (the only F1 lowii cross I have came through a trade, for a fair bit in return). They're also still slow
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Curses. Oh well, I should probably just get a nice maxima from the gift shop of a conservatory I go to. Thanks for the help.

    Are there any particular lowii traits you're looking for?
