Nepenthes platychila (Borneo)

Short supply (FAQ)


Product number: AW-N_plat.2
Product information "Nepenthes platychila (Borneo)"
A very spectacular Nepenthes species. The most striking feature of N. platychila is the striped, flat, extremely broad peristome on the funnel-shaped, spotted upper pitchers. 
This feature is so dominant in the species that it is still clearly visible even in hybrids with N. platychila.
The lower pitchers are very elongate with a round, narrow peristome and slender pitcher body.
Leaves and tendrils in this species are very hairy.
Nepenthes platychila is found at 900-1400 m.a.s.l. and thus belongs to the mid-highland species. There are also some reports of successful cultivation on the windowsill.
