Nepenthes lowii Trus Madi BE 3100

Nepenthes lowii Trus Madi BE3100 was selected by Borneo Exotics for it’s exceptional vigor. This is a fabulous species with extremely tough purple/green pitchers, slow growing but highly rewarding, since few other species have such contrasting and unique upper and lower pitchers. Nepenthes lowii rarely develops strong root systems until the plants become quite mature. Mature lower pitchers will have numerous bristles on the underside of its lid, while the upper pitchers are more”toilet shaped”, with a white sugary substance or exudate.

From a single carefully selected clone out of microprop.

December 2023 these are x small and small but plants but growing well in 4 ” pots, 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.
