Nepenthes (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x robcantleyi BE 4031


First introduced to cultivation in Sept 2020 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is the highly vigorous N. ventricosa x sibuyanensis with collection ID 0566 and the male parent is the giant black N. robcantleyi, with the cultivar name ‘King of Spades’. This is a great cross as the photos show and is very eye catching. The extreme vigor of the female parent and the size of the male parent have combined well to make a cross that seems to pitcher very nicely.

Random selection from very many clones out of microprop. Plants are potted in a 4 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss and 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.
