Product information "Nepenthes northiana (Borneo)"
An impressive lowland species, with unique, large pitchers. The striped, raised and flared peristome is an absolute eye-catcher. The species is only found in Kuching, Sarawak and inhabits the limestone cliffs there.
Nepenthes northiana grows litophytic in nature and therefore prefers mineral, airy substrates. However, an increased lime content in the substrate does not seem to be necessary for successful cultivation. As long as the conditions remain constant and appropriate lowland conditions are provided, the species is absolutely a joy to keep . Large specimens are however rare in culture.
