    I've got a little (1" across) N. lowii that I've had for 3 months. I'm some what concerned because it isn't really growing, it has only sprouted 1 new leaf. Does anyone know if this is normal for this species or for a plant this small?

    N. lowii is SLOOOWWW.. I am not surprised at 1 leaf in 3 months although they can grow a bit faster than that. As long as the new leaf is at least slightly larger and the old leaves are not dying off rapidly and the plant looks healthy I wouldn't be concerned.

    Tony,

    Thanks for the heads up, I'm glad to hear that it is just a species trend and not something I'm doing wrong.

    NepG,

    I got my lowii from Wistuba, it was the only place I could find it. Once it gets larger I'll be taking cuttings but considering what Tony said it will probably be a while

    N. lowii is not too hard to find. Most Nepenthes dealers have them available. They can be a bit pricey though since they are in pretty high demand and slow growers.

    Isn't N. Lowlii suspected of using bird droppings for food more so than insects? Fascinating plant...

    I want one.. someday... I have bought to much lately...

    I have coming in the mail:

    N. Rocco X Fucca
    N. Truncata X Vetchie
    N. Bicalarata (Mature or almost mature specimen)

    Seeds for:

    N. Bicalrata
    N. X Gymnamphora (unknown hybrid to this plant.

    NepG,

    Her is his web-address:

    http://www.wistuba.com

    Something to keep in mind is that he is in Germany
