Nepenthes glandulifera x robcantleyi BE 3964


Nepenthes glandulifera x robcantleyi BE 3964 was first introduced by Borneo Exotics in November 2018. This is a cross between two of the most robust species in the genus and easily grows enormous pitchers. The characteristics of both species are clearly evident, including the black nectar glands on the tendrils and underside of the leaves, that give rise to the female parent’s name. The male parent is the giant black N. robcantleyi, with the cultivar name ‘King of Spades’.

These are medium plants, 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 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.
