Hi Micheal, I am new here from Malaysia been reading this forum recently and decide to register online. I use to have a ventricosa x lowii growing as lowland but it did not make it . It kept making smalller leaves and eventually died. IT did grew very fast though but my lowii x truncata is still doing well. I find that maybe my cross takes on the lowii genes more then the ventricosa but i do hope that someday they make more hybrids for the true lowland.
Hi northiana, thanks for the info. I have a lowii x truncata and it's doing quite well in Singapore... was toying with the idea of getting a lowii x ventricosa (whenever it becomes available again!) but if it doesn't do well in Malaysia, it's probably not going to do well here in Singapore.Do you grow a Predator too?
Hi ebeyonder, the Lowii x ventricosa was growing awhile with pitcher and then when the weather turns hot it goes into decline and it never regain strength after that. I do have predator too. They one tough plants i can say. It pitcher for me during the cooler period and the pitcher last along time mine is more then 6 months and still going strong. They need some how bright light and windy area. Truncata x ( spectabilis x northiana ) is the fastest and easiest to grow can rival my miranda hehehe but it too needs very bright light to grow and pitcher mine very leafy not much pitcher either

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

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
