Nepenthes platychila x lowii
Another amazing Nepenthes hybrid from Christian Klein! We are really excited about some of the plants coming from him. This hybrid has a lot of potential, it will be interesting to see how they turn out!
This specimen is a well hardened-off seed-grown plant from Christian Klein. It’s medium-sized, about 4.5″ across. It’s still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
This plant prefers highland conditions, which means that it should be kept around 70-80°F during the day and 50-60°F at night with a very high relative humidity.
Nepenthes as a genus prefer high humidity, at least 75% RH for most species. In addition, they should be watered with distilled water, rainwater or reverse osmosis water rather than tap or well water. Fertilizing Nepenthes should only be done rarely, and with extreme care.
