Waisted pitchers with a waxy texture. This well-known species comes in a wide variety of colorations. It is probably one of the most hardy and forgiving of all highland Nepenthes and is therefore an ideal beginner’s plant.

First introduced in June 2017 by Borneo Exotics. This item is produced from BE’s seed-grown plants with collection IDs: CID 0778 x CID 0877 and differs from BE-3771 in that these plants are seed-grown and BE-3771 are a random assortment from a large number of clones out of microprop.

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.
