Nepenthes spathulata x glabrata BE3790

Nepenthes spathulata x glabrata BE3790 was first introduced in July 2017 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is a clone of N. spathulata with Collection ID 0440 also sold under BE-3174. The male parent is a seed-grown clone of N. glabrata with Collection ID 0097. The plants so far have proven to be a vigorous grower and easy to produce pitchers. We expect these to be tall plants very quickly. The plants will be shipped in a 4 inch pot containing 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.
