Nepenthes (maxima x talangensis) x robcantleyi BE 3959


The female parent is N. (maxima x talangensis) selected from the same grex as the award winning cultivar Nepenthes ‘Lady Pauline’ (‘Lady Pauline’ in fact turned out to be a male plant). The male parent is a giant and exceptionally black N. robcantleyi, which is one of the original six and has the cultivar name ‘King of Spades’. This particular clone was selected from amongst many for its exceptional vigor but in particular for the two-tone peristome which is very prominent when pitchers are young and is still visible in mature pitchers.

From a single carefully selected clone out of microprop. Plants are potted in a 3.5 inch pot, filed with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.
