Product information "Nepenthes attenboroughii (Mt. Victoria, Palawan)"
Absolutely stunning newer species, discovered in 2007 and described in 2009. The epithet was chosen in honour of the naturalist Sir David Attenborough.
The pitchers of Nepenthes attenboroughii belong to the largest pitchers of the whole genus, the only rival when considering the pitcher volume is Nepenthes rajah. Even a pitcher volume of more than 1.5 l has been documented in N. attenboroughii! The bell-shaped lower pitchers grow to a height of 30 cm. They are mostly green or orange and show a strongly striped peristome. The upper pitchers are slimmer yet smaller.
Nepenthes attenboroughii does very well in mineral substrates.
Due to the demand for this species, the wild populations are unfortunately severely threatened. The plants offered here are from responsible laboratory propagation.
