Nepenthes (lowii x macrophylla) x robcantleyi BE 4022


N. (x ‘trusmadiensis’) x robcantleyi, more correctly, this item is Nepenthes (lowii x macrophylla) x robcantleyi.  The female parent is Nepenthes x trusmadiensis, raised from seed in Borneo Exotic’s nurseries and the male parent is the giant black Nepenthes robcantleyi, with the cultivar name ‘King of Spades’.

Even juvenile pitchers are highly attractive, with pronounced peristome ribs. Borneo Exotics expects this cross to produce huge and amazing pitchers when mature.

Random selection from a huge number of different clones out of microprop. Plants are potted in 3.5 & 4 inch pots filled with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite. Note the larger/older plants are in the 3.5″ pots as that is all we had due to shortages thanks to Covid 19!

Note from Borneo Exotics:

This item results from a multiple pollination of a single female flower of N x trusmadiensis and as some plants to be shipped are still too small to allow a positive identification, there is a small risk (we would guess perhaps less than 5%) that any of the plants we ship may be incorrectly labelled. The other possible identities would be either:​

N. (x ‘trusmadiensis’) x burbidgeae


N. (x ‘trusmadiensis’) x aristolochioides
