Nepenthes aristolochioides x hamata BE3898

Nepenthes aristolochioides x hamata BE3898 was first introduced by Borneo Exotics in March 2018. This item is EXCLUSIVE in that Borneo Exotics does not have it in microprop. Therefore, it’s only available in extremely limited supply and will be released only occasionally. The male parent is the rare red hairy form of N. hamata sold occasionally under BE-3382. These are very robust plants, propagated in the traditional way, using cuttings taken from seed-grown mother stock.

December 2020 we are offering Medium and Medium Large plants and are currently in 4 inch pots, filled with 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.
