Nepenthes lowii x campanulata

Here’s an interesting Nepenthes hybrid that I received from Drew Martinez during the 2014 Annual Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society show and sale this past June. It’s been a nice addition to the Nepenthes sector of The Asylum. One thing I that I find really fascinating is the sweet sugary secretion under the pitcher lid. This is thanks to the Nepenthes lowii all up in the genes. (Yeah, I did taste it and it’s mildly sweet… maybe I harvest some to use in my coffee? Heh heh!) Thanks again, Drew!
