Nepenthes biak (Biak, Irian Jaya)

Short supply (FAQ)


Product number: AW-insbi.1
Product information "Nepenthes biak (Biak, Irian Jaya)"
Longer known as Nepenthes insignis biak form. The species received its species status as its own isolated group in 2018. It is described by the authors that Nepenthes biak should not form lower pitcher, but rather primary and secondary upper pitchers.
The epithet "biak" comes from the Papuan island of the same name, which this species inhabits exclusively as an endemic. There it is found near sea level on limestone rocks or more rarely as an epiphyte on mangroves. Due to the location of only a few kilometers south of the equator and the oceanic climate, there is a constant humid climate with high temperatures all year round.
Nepenthes biak is the more compact of the two species and therefore much easier to grow in limited space.
