Nepenthes ventricosa x lowii is a classic hybrid displaying the best of both parents. It produces thick leaves and the pitchers have a woody texture. It can be grown under a wide range of conditions and we recommend it as a great beginners plant especially for those in cool climates.
There's been a few growers who have created this cross over the years and each cross has its own charm. The original was made in the 90's at CSUF and includes cultivars such as 'Atlanta Giant', 'Peter D'mato' and 'Hortus Botanicus'. Exotica Plants has their own version. Christian Klein made this cross as well and they seem to be particularly vigorous with very attractive coloration. We've also made this cross in house using our giant "Denver" ventricosa and huge lowii Trusmadi.
