Product information "Nepenthes alba"
Nepenthes alba was named after the Latin word "albus", which refers to the white color of the upper pitchers. Depending on the phenotype, the uppers can be completely translucent white, even the peristome. An absolute eye-catcher in every Nepenthes setup!
The lower pitchers on the other hand are usually very dark, often red with purple spots and a dark red-purple peristome and existing wing bars. At the base of the lid, the peristome may be strongly curved inward, similar to the closely related Nepenthes macfarlanei.
This dainty species is found in the highlands of Malaysia at 1600-2100 m.a.s.l. in rainy mountain forests, where the pale uppers stand out particularly strongly from the green vegetation.
