Nepenthes sp. nov. Papua New Guinea

When photos first surfaced of this NEW species from famed wildlife photographer Ch’ien Lee, we could hardly contain ourselves. We are now proud to offer, for the first time in history, this amazing and colorful new species from our lab. The illustration above was done by Michael Kevin Smith based on few photos available of this plant in the wild, but attempts to show the complexity and coloration of this yet to be described species. An example lower pitcher on the left and an upper pitcher on the right.

This species is found on Mount Doorman’s Top in the Papua Province of New Guinea. Below you will find some photos of one of our bigger seed grown plants.  Small plants of our clone #2 will be offered on Saturday, September 02 2017.
