Nepenthes pulchra (Mindanao, Philippines)
Short supply (FAQ)
Nepenthes pulchra grows fast and without big problems. On Mt. Kiamo, the species was found at 1300-1800 m.a.s.l., thus preferring intermediate conditions.
The lower pitchers grow up to 35 cm and are almost completely intensely red in colour. Externally a delicate marbling of the pitchers is visible. The inside of the pitcher is light with a violet tinge. The upper pitchers can grow up to 42 cm and are very narrow, funnel-shaped with a spherical base.
N. pulchra grows preferably on mineral substrate.
