Nepenthes maxima x ramispina BE3740


Nepenthes maxima x ramispina, BE 3740,  was first introduced in Jan 2017. Having a very nearly a totally black pitcher, this is a highly vigorous and attractive clone. It was carefully selected in trials lasting several years, from amongst many candidate clones.

Nepenthes maxima x ramispina pitchers well and holds its pitchers thus far with these young plants. We are especially pleased with the reddish leaf color, which it likely received from its N. ramispina parent.

The photos shown here are representative and may not be identical to the plants you receive.” Plants are potted in 3.5 inch pots with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.
