    a Nepenthes "lover" who doesn't know Andreas Wistuba ? ;o)

    I got my lowii from him, too (I also live in Germany so this is not a "problem" for me)
    I have it for 6 or 7 months and it produced 4 new pitchers since that. The plant is now 3 or 4 inch across and the pitcher size is now almost 1", they are very dark red but I still can't recognize any spezific details (below the lid)
    It grows significantly faster than my N. rajah but not as fast as my N. veitchii (Highlandform), both plants also from Andreas Wistuba.

    Martin,

    What media do you have your lowii in? I'm wondering if my slow growth could be because of an improper media.

    I use an "orchid mix" with some sand and vermiculite
    Have a look... (the picture was taken about two months after buying the plant from Andreas Wistuba)

    Martin,

    Nice picture. That is about how mine looks except smaller. You mix sound like mine so I'm guessing that it is just the slow nature of this plant that I am experiencing.

    I think Andreas is running low on some species and sending them smaller than usual. The past batch of lowii were about an inch in diameter .. a year ago they were twice that size.

    I have some growing in pure NZealand sphagnum and they seem to be happy in that also. I just make sure it's not packed tightly and they are not sopping wet all the time.
