Nepenthes khasiana (India) (CITES)


Product number: AW-N_khas.1
Product information "Nepenthes khasiana (India) (CITES)"
The only Nepenthes sp. that occurs in India and is endemic there. It occurs on the eponymous Khasi Mountains in Meghalaya at 1000-1500 m.a.s.l..
In India Nepenhtes khasiana has the trivial names "Tiew-rakot" (demon plant), "kset phare" (lidded fly net) and "Memang-koksi" (devil's basket).
Due to acid drainage from mines and habitat loss, Nepenthes khasiana is acutely threatened and therefore listed on CITES Appendix 1 (WA I).
The pitchers are greenish-yellow in colour and show a reddish reticulation. The peristome is usually yellow.
Especially well known is the hybrid with N. khasiana called N. x gaya.
Prolific species as long as the conditions fit.
