Nepenthes peltata BE 4025


The pitcher form and leaf attachment seem somewhat variable, but so far as we are aware, all clones sold under this item match the species description. Borneo Exotics noticed on the few mature plants they have, that the glands beneath the lid exude a thick white nectar and this is shown on the last two photos in the series. It’s not as prolific an exudate as on N. lowii or N. ephippiata, but it’s still unusually dense.

Borneo Exotics originally offered this species in June 2012 as a single clone under BE-3464. This item is a random selection from a large number of clones and replaces BE-3464, which is now discontinued. Offering a range of different clones is important for conservation as well as being much more fun to grow!

The plants are potted in a 4 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

Nepenthes peltata BE 4025

Climate: Highland

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 55 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.
