Nepenthes tenuis – Reddish Leaf Form – Wistuba – Rare
Nepenthes tenuis – reddish leaf form is an uncommon species in cultivation, and threatened in the wild.
These specimens are well hardened-off clones from Wistuba. They are medium-sized, about 3-5″ across. They’re 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.
