Nepenthes boschiana x lowii BE 4067

$130.00

Borneo Exotics created this hybrid for a particular reason. N. lowii is known for having some of the toughest, woodiest pitchers in the entire genus and N. boschiana also has unusually tough pitchers, so this hybrid will follow suit and should produce tough and long-lasting pitchers, perhaps with nectar exudate under the lids.

Random selection from a large number of different clones out of microprop.

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

Climate: Highland

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.
