Nepenthes talangensis x hamata BE 4003


The female parent is BE clone #14 of Nepenthes talangensis, selected for vigor from amongst the assorted clones sold under BE-3187. The male parent is a seed-grown specimen of the Tambusisi form of Nepenthes hamata. So far the pitchers are eye-catching, with toothy peristomes and striking dark pitchers.

Random selection from very many clones out of microprop. Plants are potted in a 3.5 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss plus 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.
