    The pitcher shown is about 13 cm high, and is of the G. Mulu
    variety. This variety is somewhat different from the G. Trus Madi
    type; it is more robust, and the finger-like projections under
    the operculum are thicker and much more numerous. This plant
    has yet to produce upper pitchers, but I suspect it will do so
    within the year.

    Not a very good picture, but I hope you enjoy it!

    Excellent! That's the lowiis I have. Only, mine are 3" seedlings with pea sized pitchers. How old is the plant which grew that pitcher? Does lowii's growth speed up after a certain size?

    Shows how much I know. I thought the Trus Madi was the most robust.
    Neps, How would you rank the four locales of N. lowii from easist to hardest?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Well I think it is an impressive picture and an impressive plant.

    I ned a greenhouse

    Hi Jeff,

    very nice pitcher looking considerable different to the N. lowii clones from Trusmadi:

    Yes, which geographical forms are more difficult or easy. I'm getting a N. lowii from Mt. kinabulu (spelling?), and I don't really know what it looks like.

    Very nice! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You don't need a greenhouse Pyro, just a basement, a few lights, some ultrasonic humidifiers and.... Oh yes, a great deal of time, patience and dedication. After all that it's easy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Joachim, my N. lowii are all from Trus Madi, but recollection serves to tell me that they look more like Jeff's than the photo you just posted. Hmm. Memory could be playing tricks on me. I'm making the trek up to the highland nursery next week and will try to take some photos.
