Product number: AW-N_al_GRP.1
Product information "Nepenthes gracilliflora (alata)"
A very simple and variable colored species. While many commercially available N. alata are actually N. x ventrata (i.e. N. ventricosa x alata), the pure species is sold here. Unfortunately, N. alata often unjustly finds little favor with more experienced hobbyists due to its stigma as a "beginner's species" due to the x ventrata hybrid, however, this hardy species is especially worthwhile for windowsill or similar setups where compromises must be made.
The adaptability of Nepenthes alata is shown by its wide range of altitudes, namely it occurs from 400-2400 m.a.s.l., i.e. lowland to highland.
