Nepenthes [(lowii x veitchii) – yellow x boschiana] x platychila – Seed Grown – Exotica Plants – Specimen #8
Nepenthes [(lowii x veitchii) – yellow x boschiana] x platychila
This specimen is a well hardened-off clone from Exotica Plants. It’s very large, 9 to 12 inches across. It’s still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
This plant prefers intermediate to highland conditions, which means that it should be kept around 73-83°F during the day and 53-63°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.
