Nepenthes lowii (Mt. Trusmadi x Mt. Murud) FV-102-IC

One of the most unusually shaped pitchers in the genus are produced by the iconic N. lowii, known to occur on a number of different mountains throughout Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Uppers are funnel-shaped, perfectly designed for the species' mutualistic relationship with a mountain tree shrew in which the plant exchanges a sugary-sweet exudate in exchange for the shrews' nitrogen-rich excrements. Offered - for the last time before switching to selected clones - are individual clones from seeds, horticulturally produced by Klaus Keller in Germany.

Pictured plant is potted in a 7 x 7 cm pot for reference. Sizes may vary slightly.
