Nepenthes robcantleyi x reinwardtiana BE 3960


Nepenthes robcantleyi x reinwardtiana BE 3960  was first introduced November 2018, by Borneo Exotics. The female parent of this release has the cultivar name ‘Queen of Hearts’ and is very probably the most photographed Nepenthes in history, having appeared on many of Borneo Exotic’s gold medal winning Chelsea Flower show exhibits. The male parent is a classic pure green form of N. reinwardtiana, with our collection ID 1508.  Borneo Exotics is finding this cross to be extremely robust.

Plants are potted in a 4 inch pot with long fiber sphagnum moss and pearlite.

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 pearlite 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.
