Time will tell if it continues - but for now, I'm quite happy with the little guy...

John, over here, has a number of threads with his N. lowii uppers featured prominently (although I see that you posted over there also).
ive got a couple of them from different TC stock than most.......mine has proven not to be as slow as i feared either.....not my fastest grower but definitely faster than my macrophylla and izumae's.......and i started with plants that were smaller than dime size.....
