Nepenthes lowii X campanulata is an Exotica Plants hybrid between a highlander and a lowlander. This particular cross should prove to be very exciting because of the potential that both parent plants exhibit. I've been growing this outdoors as a highlander and so far it has acclimated well. Leaves are thick and waxy like N. lowii and the plant appears to stay smaller like N. campanulata. There seems to be some variation in color from dark pitchers to more light colored ones. Plants also look like they send out some small growths like N. campanulata does as well. It's an easy growing hybrid that should also do well in intermediate conditions possibly outdoors in more tropical areas. I think this hybrid will be a popular hybrid in years to come as more plants reach maturity.
