Nepenthes reinwardtiana – Seed Grown – ‘Red’ – Kelabit Highlands – Christian Klein
Nepenthes reinwardtiana – ‘Red’
These specimens are well hardened-off seed-grown plants from Christian Klein. They are large, 6 to 8 inches across. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
This plant prefers lowland to intermediate conditions, which means that it should be kept around 78-88°F during the day and 60-68°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.
