    N. Lowii (Trusmadi) refers to the mountain that the plant originated from. N. Lowii is found on quite a few mountains (which you can read more about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepenthes_lowii)

    The mt. Trusmadi varieties tend to be a bit larger with speckled upper pitcher interiors. In contrast the mt. Murud varieties are smaller with an all red interior. There may be more here, but I am no expert.
    Have a wonderful day!

    N. lowii is found all across the northeastern half of Borneo, with some of the mountains it's been collected from and forms in cultivation including Mt. Trus Madi, Mulu, Murud, Tambuyukon, Kinabalu, and others. The Trus Madi forms have a fair likelihood of having macrophylla influence as the hybrid is common and often backcrosses there.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
