Beautiful plants, Brok! Question: how big will the pitchers eventually get on N. lowii X spectabilis, do you know? My plant is doing very well, growing rapidly (considering its pedigree; eight pitchers in as many months) but they are increasing in size slooooowwwly. I think the new one is still barely 5" tall. These WILL get quite a bit larger, no?

Thanks!

Hi Paul,

The plant grows vigorously, but my pitchers are no bigger than yours. I've seen pictures of larger pitchers, but my plant has put out nothing larger than about 5 to 6" max.

Regards,

Do you, by any chance, have a lowii x spectabilis? On CP Photo Finder, I was looking for pictures of uppers on that plant, and I saw a picture of a lower that had "Brokken" in the URL, so I'm guessing you do own one? Unless you traded it off.

Is it producing uppers? If so, could you post pictures? Thanks and beautiful lowii hybrids you have!

Hi Pineapple,

It's not putting uppers yet. This is what it looks like now:

Wow! Yours looks great! I with the peristome on mine was that bright. It's like a dark purple and light brown lol. :blush:

Let me know if it starts producing uppers or intermediates. It looks like it may be a few years before mine does. :(

Do you find that the hairs on lowii hybrids only appear with age, or are my plants just stupid?

Mass: They come and go. Some pitchers have them and others completely lack them. None of my lowii hybrids are making uppers yet, so I can't tell you if with age, this trait becomes more regular.

Thanks TOG! :) I'm pretty happy with my decision to go with Micro Four Thirds.

Rokko: I like a diverse collection. I think that if I had to pick one, it would have to be something with a big, flared peristome - like Platy or some of the veitchii/eymae hybrids. :)

Finally, not a full update and not of the GH, but since I took some photos of my Adrian Slack for another thread, I figured I'd post this:
