Nepenthes singalana x diabolica BE 3900


This item differs from BE-3955 in that the N. hamata parent is very different. BE-3955 has the Gng Tambusisi form of N. hamata as the male parent, but for this item, the male parent is N. diabolica (formerly the red hairy form of N. hamata) sold under BE-3382.

These are very robust plants, propagated in the traditional way from cuttings using an assortment of seed-grown mother stock. Pitchers will probably be somewhat variable in coloration.

These are medium plants, potted in 4 inch pots, with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

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.
