Nepenthes inermis – Christian Klein – Seed Grown – Very Rare – Specimen
Nepenthes inermis is a very rare species in cultivation, and threatened in the wild. It produces bright green, dramatically funnel-shaped upper pitchers when fully grown.
This specimen is a well hardened-off seed-grown plant from Christian Klein. It’s medium-sized, about 3-5″ 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.
