Did you by any chance see N. lowii in both locations? If so, did
you see any differences in their habitat (or temperature). Yes, I'm
interested in this species too, and I'm hoping to find a form that might
be more warmth tolerant.

I wish I could help, but unfortunately I don't know anyone who grow
this species.

Hey CPeople!

I've read that some of you on this list have visited Borneo, to look at
nepenthes. Where is the best place to go for a beginner (Mt. Kinabalu?),
and when did you arrange/reserve the hikes? Before going to Borneo, or
at the actual spot?
