Nepenthes (ventricosa x bellii) x dubia – N. x ‘Dormouse’ – Leilani Nepenthes – Rooted Cutting
Nepenthes (ventricosa x bellii) x dubia – N. x ‘Dormouse’
These specimens are well hardened-off rooted cuttings originally bred by Sam Estes at Leilani Nepenthes. They’re large, 6 to 8 inches across. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
These plants prefer intermediate conditions, which means that they should be kept around 75-85°F during the day and 55-65°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.
