Nepenthes ventricosa x dubia BE3742


Nepenthes ventricosa x dubia BE3742

Nepenthes ventricosa x dubia was first introduced by Borneo Exotics in Jan 2017. This hybrid was introduced earlier as seed-grown individuals under BE-3571 in September 2013 and quickly sold out due to it’s highly attractive appearance. It’s also remarkably vigorous as would be expected with a Nepenthes ventricosa parentage.

Medium plants are potted in a 4 inch pot 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.
