I bought my N. lowii back in June or so of 2002 and since then it has made about 6 leaves and has perhaps finally acclimatized to my highland tank and made it's first pitcher (about 2 cm high on a 3 cm leaf). The pot I planted it in is completely filled with living sphagnum now, perhaps this is assisting the new pitchering? I have waited til the pitcher was open for a week and has attained a dark red color and put in a 2 week old cricket tonight.
For you lowii growers, once it settles in does the rate of leaves/pitchers increase at all since it can be fed insects now?
Thanks for any thoughts!
