Product information "Nepenthes eustachya (K. Sembilan, Sumatra)"
A litophytic species from North Sumatra. The wide altitudinal occurrence from 0-1600 m.a.s.l. allows the species to be successfully maintained under various conditions.
The earlier classification under N. alata is particularly evident in the similar lower pitchers. The upper pitchers, however, are clearly distinguished, by the more angular appearance with the rounded base below the hip of the pitcher.
Most Nepenthes eustachya show a contrasting red-green coloured peristome and a red or pale, almost whitish pitcher body. The clones sold here show an intense red ground colour.
Often underestimated, attractive species.
