Product number: AW-N_leo.8
Product information "Nepenthes leonardoi (Palawan)"
Fascinating species from the Palawan endemic relationship. Nepenthes leonardoi was described in 2011 and named in honor of the botanist Leonardo Co, who died on the first day of the N. leonardoi expedition due to political unrest.
The lower pitchers can grow up to 15 cm tall and are highly variable in color but often orange-red, the upper pitchers are usually lighter and reach up to 24 cm in size. The peristome can be striped. However, there is a very interesting form of this species that produces completely black upper pitchers.
Nepenthes leonardoi has been found exclusively terrestrially at 1300-1490 m.a.s.l. in Palawan.
