Given that you're in Israel, you're best bet is someone in Europe. It is a common hybrid now, so you may even be able to get cuttings from a collector.

What is Isreali customs/quarantine like?

as long as there are phytosanitary certificates there is absolutely no problem
truthfully I dont know if they even check if there any certificates
and there is no quarantine as far as I know.
the strange thing is that I see the plant on peoples grow lists and I ask myself from where did they get it, after I have been looking for a few months with no result.

Things come in waves. There are usually plenty when they're first released, then it goes quiet for a while, then there are cuttings for trade. Lowii x ventricosa and ventricosa x lowii have been made several times by several nurseries and individuals, so is not hard to find. Both crosses are very vigorous growers, and there are plenty of large plants around, so cuttings won't be hard to find. The best thing to do may be to post a 'wanted' or 'swap' message in the various CP fora, and I'm sure someone will sell you or swap a cutting.

Nepenthes require CITES certificates, hybrids included. Most countries require a phytosanitary certificate. Some countries require some sort of import permit.

As Hamish mentioned, N. ventricosa x lowii was made a while back with a few different clones floating around from cuttings. N. lowii x ventricosa was made more recently but by now the original batch of seedlings have mostly all sold. Exotica has one for Auction this month..
I have not seen any cuttings of these around yet but imagine they will one day. Problem is the CITES and other documents to ship to other countries. I would contact Arie. He would know better what's required to import into Israel.

Hi thank you! I checked and if bringing a small number of plants, that is, a small parcel the usual CITES and phytosanitary certificate, that Tony mentioned, are enough
