Nepenthes lowii X (spathulata X maxima) is an Exotica Plants highland hybrid. This particular hybrid has different lower pitchers and uppers. The lower pitchers and upper pitchers retain a lot of the female N. lowii parentage. As the plant starts vining, the upper pitchers change and the mouth widens noticeably. Also the nice red disappears as well. It's a vigorous grower and does get into the vining stage fairly quickly for a highlander. I grow it outdoors in full sun without any problems at all. As with all Exotica Plants hybrids that use N. lowii, they are usually in short supply and highly collectable.
