Nepenthes macfarlanei – Gunung Brinchang – Seed Grown – Christian Klein
We are offering a select plant here. Nepenthes macfarlanei – Gunung Brinchang is an uncommon species in cultivation, and threatened in the wild. This species produces attractive pale, red-speckled pitchers with a red peristome and broad lid.
These specimens are well hardened-off and seed-grown from Christian Klein. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.They are small, about 3-4″ across.
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.
