Nepenthes lowii is found in an upper montane environments on throughout Borneo. It is famous for feeding on the droppings of tree shrews and birds by luring them with a sugary exudate on the lid of its pitchers. The Kinabalu form of lowii tends to produce pitchers with interiors that are a bit more purple than other forms.
Nepenthes lowii requires highland temperatures and high humidity to thrive. It needs very good drainage or is prone to rot especially when young. We recommend using net pots and a mix with a high portion (>50%) of perlite or other coarse well draining components. The soil should not be kept too wet and should be allowed to go to just damp in between waterings.
