    Yes, this is a photo of a plant in cultivation.

    I just obtained a great new digital camera, and used it
    to create the image. Hopefully, I'll be able to post a
    series of new, higher quality images from now on....

    I've often noted strong, sweet, almost citrus-like aromas associated with certain Nepenthes. Does the lowii secretion have a fragrance/odor?

    I don't have the most sensitive nose, but the exudate seems to exude a very subtle sour smell. Overall, however, N. lowii does have the characteristic sweet scent which you describe. The flowers of this species are also somewhat unusual in that
    they don't have the "cat piss" smell so commonly associated with Nepenthes flowers. Rather, I suspect they smell like a sweaty armpit which has been sprayed with deodorant. (Yes, I am serious!)
