This thread is a bit old, but this species is great, so thought I'd mention that the images of this plant displayed here are superb!
Ya know, I don't think I've ever seen pics of the uppers grown in captivity(if that's the right word)
Here's one of mine. Took this a few years ago. Not a great picture, but it reveals some of the upper characteristics. Of particular interest is the fact that the projections under the operculum, which are so prominent in lower pitchers, are absent here.
Really nice pic Neps! I have a question for all who grow this great plant: What light levels do you use?
Mine seems not to like too much light, getting red-burned leaves that were growing smaller when it was set out in the open, it's back to being grown in the shade of the larger plants again. I seem to have more luck with my Lowii, although I heard the Epy is easier and grows quicker.. I can say the Epy is more tolerant of warmer temps though.
I'd kinda like to see an Ephippiata x Campanulata hybrid myself.. the High/Low combo should make for a tolerant intermidiate with the Toilet Bowl characteristics.

Here's a pic of mine last summer
The tendrils have gotten a lot thicker. Unfortunately the freeze damaged the plant but it should produce a pitcher by this summer. It will come back but it will take a while. I grow this guy in a hanging basket in full sun. Seems to do alright but a bit of a slow grower in my outdoor conditions.

It is in full sun in a hanging basket. Maybe about 10 to 12" across? What's interesting Michael is that I got another ephip from Tony that was good sized too. I could tell the leaves were a darker green and thinner than my other one that had been outdoors for a few years. The new one got beat up between the weeks of low humidity Santa Ana winds and then the 30 degree weather. It looked pretty bad but is coming back. The sunlight isn't much of a problem once the plant has acclimated. Are you trying any at your place?

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated
