Nepenthes lowii X boschiana is an Exotica Plants hybrid between a highlander and an intermediate. Exotica Plants is producing a lot of great hybrids using N. lowii as the female parent. Any hybrids with N. lowii as a parent are worth collecting in my opinion. I've found that this is an easy grower and a faster grower than N. lowii. I have several clones from seed and most are still juveniles although I have seen some larger plants from other growers starting to become available. The adult pitchers are the ones that will be most interesting as that's when the N. lowii influence should show itself as for unique pitcher shape. Exotica Plants has had a few photos of some of their plants showing some flaring in the peristome. I'm hoping the color of the N. boschiana will combine with the uppers of N. lowii to make a stunning hybrid.
