    N. Lowii crosses

    I've recently become interested in N. Lowii, they seem like they would not like my climate. I'm in Ohio and the average summer high is 80-90 with a drop to the mid 70's at night. Are there any Lowii hybrids that would be happy in my climate?

    I know someone who grows a lowii cross in Miami (or is it a (lowii x?) x?) I just don't remember what the cross was exactly so you definitely can, I just don't know which ones)

    If you were to cross a lowii with an ultra lowlander I am assuming you would get a plant that could tolerate higher temps and not grow one leaf every two years ( sarcasm).

    This may not be of direct help to you, but Exotica Plants should be putting up their catalogue some time soon, they have a temperature guide that you can look through to see what would be able to work in your conditions.

    That said, if you go back to Red Lowii's thread see what hybrids he has, some of them are or were grown outside in summer conditions that sound like yours.

    Update: it seems like Lowii x truncata is hard as rocks. I'm not sure if the forum allows for other nurseries to be mentioned, but if they are I would appreciate some advice on where to find one.

    lowii x campanulata, lowii x merilliana, lowii x (spec x northiana) just to name a few. They tend to be really expensive and hard to find, for good reason though!!

    Are there any easy to find Lowii hybrids that would like my climate? What about pure Lowiis?
