Nepenthes (ampullaria x ‘Viking’) x dubia BE 3694


Borneo Exotics first introduced Nepenthes (ampullaria x ‘Viking’) x dubia BE 3694 in June 2016. Correctly, this hybrid has the scientific name N. (ampullaria x mirabilis) x dubia . The N. mirabilis component is the exceptionally beautiful Thai version of the species, commonly known in cultivation as N. ‘Viking’. The N. ampullaria component is a Brunei red form. This is a highly vigorous hybrid, which grows well in a wide range of temperatures and has a most unusual unique pitcher shape. The plants  are a random selection from very many clones out of microprop.

Plants are in 4 inch pots and potted in long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

Tropical Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes sp.) Care

  • Best to use only pure water – rainwater, distilled water or RO water. Be careful of bottled water as some contain salt which will kill your Tropical Pitcher plant
  • Keep a small amount of pure water in each trap. Mist plants regularly.
  • Keep soil moist; but well drained at all times. Do Not let your Nepenthes sit in water
  • Nepenthes like partial sunny location. They grow well on windowsills or under fluorescent lights in a terrarium.
  • Soil is mixture 3 parts long fiber sphagnum with 1 part perlite or 1 part fine orchid bark.
  • Fertilize Nepenthes with foliar fertilizer. ¼ tsp of Maxsea per gallon of water, 2 times a month
  • Nepenthes like to grow warm: above 50 degrees. Ideal is 65 to 80 degrees with high humidity.

Note: Pitchers will change in color and shape as they mature. Often there are also several different clones in our mix, so the pitchers may vary slightly for this reason as well.
