  1. Hi everyone, 

     

    I currently have in my collection a young plant grown from wild Nepenthes lowii seeds harvested on the Kinabalu. It grows pretty well with my other highlanders, maybe too quickly for a N. lowii, but... Do you think it looks like a pure N. lowii ? I find it very hairy, looks quite similar to something like N. lowii x veitchii or else. What's your opinion ?

  2. Hi,

     

    The same thing. I don't know him personnally and I don't want to. But he's a really bad person, he talks with a rude langage on this forum and is very disrespectful. If you want some examples, see topics on the Dionaea section. I want to say that such people don't have their place on the CPUK. 

     

    If you tell him something he doesn't like, he'll send you a very nice private message with all his love. That proves he is a devious and perverse person.

    Mind your own business and your forum instead of looking for trouble.

    It caused me many problems since I have it... So I hope that its last leaf jump is a good thing.

    Nepenthes sumatrana, can't wait to see true lowers and no more these very boring rosette pitchers...

    Not a Nepenthes but a nice Heliamphora ciliata.

    If you don't like criticism, just go away. ;)


  5. Hi everybody,

     

    One of my friends has an Utricularia which is appeared spontaneously in his sphagnum and he doesn't know what specie this plant can be...

    I thought to something like U. nephrophylla, U. reniformis or a young U. nelumbifolia but nothing sure. Have ou an idea ?

  6. Hi,

     

    I'm not sure, but I think I still have problems with hybrids... If you can help me I will be grateful.

    I obtained a Nepenthes sumatrana from Wistuba there are maybe three or four months. However on Facebook somebody tells me (again) it can be a hybrid because the peristome is not as striped as expected.

    What do you think ? Please tell me it's not a hybrid or I... Drown myself in a pitcher.

  7. Hi,

     

    Yes it's a very ugly setup, I must confess it and I don't want to hide this point.

    I would make an installation more... Professional and interesting. However I don't have what I need for that. As I only have one highlander, for the moment I think it's ok. But in the future I will have to find another way to grow the plant.

     

    In all cases, your advices reinforce me : it's visibly possible to grow N. lowii with these conditions.


  8. Hi everybody,

     

    Until now, I only cultivated lowland species. However I would try a highlander. In this purpose, I keep a young Nepenthes lowii from Wistuba received last week in a small fridge.

    The plant is in pure sphagnum, inside a small plastic container kept closed by cellophane. Because of that, I must open the container to change the air sometimes.

    31964720141114092531.jpg

    All is placed under a light (Exo Terra Tropical Glo 5.0), not too much strong to avoid to burn the plant.

    13,1°C at night... Seems to be good.

    During the day, I have approximately 28°C. What do you think about this ugly installation ? :P
