Nepenthes eustachya x tenuis BE 3971


Nepenthes eustachya x tenuis BE 3971 was first introduced by Borneo Exotics in April 2018. The two very different looking parent species create an interesting cross. N. tenuis seems to give the peristome a flanged appearance in many of the hybrids Borneo Exotics has created using it. Also, the wide altitudinal distribution of N. eustachya (0-1600m a.s.l.) will certainly make this variety easy to grow under a broad range of temperature conditions.

Random selection from very many clones out of microprop. Plants are potted in a 4 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss plus 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.
