Nepenthes spathulata x singalana BE 4004


First introduced Dec 2019 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is our selected clone of Nepenthes spathulata sold under BE-3175 and with collection ID 0441. The male parent is the Belirang form of Nepenthes singalana.

This cross is most unusual. it’s a very handsome cross, but look at the lid and where the spur emerges. This is on the only plant Borneo Exotic’s has raised so far, so they’re not sure whether or not this is a stable characteristic. But if so, it’s very interesting. With the spur emerging from within the margin of the lid in this way, almost gives the impression the lid has been somehow stuck on.

Random selection from seed-grown, mixed with very many clones out of microprop.

Plants are potted in a 4 inch pot filled with long fiber sphagnum moss plus 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.
