Nepenthes glandulifera x hamata BE3953

Nepenthes glandulifera x hamata BE3953 was introduced Oct 2018 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is a seed-raised N. glandulifera, selected from those formerly sold under BE-3613 and the male parent is the very spectacular Gng. Lumut form of N. hamata, sold under BE-3380 and which is the easiest form of N. hamata to grow. This hybrid is proving to be vigorous as expected and is a prolific producer of highly attractive pitchers. The pitcher bodies are wonderfully furry to the touch.

Plants are in a 4″ pot, 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.
