Seller descriptionย 
  • The legendary Nepenthes lowii! Certainly one of the most famous Nepenthes species. With absolutely unique, specialized upper pitchers, the species is not only visually captivating
  • The shape of these high pitchers is also the basis for an absolutely fascinating mutualism. Between the bristles on the pitcher lid, N. lowii secretes a sugary substance. This serves as food for the tree squirrels Tupaia montana and leads to subsequent defecation of the animals. This feces serves as a nitrogen source for the Nepenthes lowii
  • Lower pitchers of this species already show the bristles, but are not as extremely funnel-shaped as the uppers. The upper pitchers are highly variable and can bear diverse colors
  • Nepenthes lowii is found on Mt. Kinabalu, Trusmadi, Murud and Mulu in Borneo at 1650-2600 m.a.s.l.
  • N. lowii is a persistent grower under the right conditions, due to the slow growth it is recommended to start early with the species
  • More rare locality of this species
