Nepenthes macfarlanei – Gunung Brinchang – Seed Grown – Christian Klein
We are offering a select plant here. Nepenthes macfarlanei – Gunung Brinchang is an uncommon specimen! It is seed grown from Christian Klein, and well hardened off. At our nursery we grow this plant under highland conditions, which means that the temperature is kept around 75° F during the day and 50-55° F at night with a very high relative humidity. Customers will need to provide a similar environment for best results.
Nepenthes as a genus prefer very 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. They should only be fertilized rarely, and with extreme care. Nepenthes get most of their nutrients from their prey!
This species produces attractive pale, red-speckled pitchers with a red peristome and broad lid. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet. They’re small, about 3″ across. This plant is a well hardened-off seedling from Christian Klein.
