Nepenthes boschiana BE 3643


Nepenthes boschiana BE 3643 is a rare and spectacular species from southern Borneo. It’s a robust and easy grower with tough and long-lasting pitchers. Introduced in December 2014, BE 3643 is a cross between two plants from the same location – Gng Sakumpang. For purists and conservation-minded people alike, this is an important step towards preserving the integrity of the form of the species from Gng Sakumpang in ex-situ conservation.

This group is a random selection from very many clones out of microprop. Plants are medium size and potted in a 4 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss, plus 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 pearlite 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.
