Nepenthes peltata x sp. #1 BE 4024


First introduced to cultivation in August 2020, by Borneo Exotics.  The female parent is the Wistuba clone of N. peltata and the male parent is as a yet undescribed Sumatran species, sold under BE-3172, which forms huge pitchers.
This cross is a prolific producer of pitchers which are not unlike N. peltata in appearance, but of course are much larger. The underside of the leaves is an eye-catching red color, even on juvenile plants.
Random selection from many clones out of microprop. Plants are in a 4 inch pots, potted with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

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 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.
