Nepenthes rajah (Mt. Kinabalu, Borneo) (CITES)

Short supply (FAQ)


Product number: AW-N_raj_kin.1
Product information "Nepenthes rajah (Mt. Kinabalu, Borneo) (CITES)"
Definitely one of the most iconic Nepenthes species. Nepenthes rajah captivates with both appearance, size and ecology.
The urn-shaped pitchers, up to 35 cm in size, show a red-purple coloration, a red-purple, strongly serrated peristome and an unusually long pitcher lid for the genus. This secretes a sugar solution which, as in N. lowii, attracts various small mammals and trades sugar for the nutrients in the faeces in a mutualistic exchange. N. rajah grows on extremely nutrient-poor, mineral soils that are contaminated with metals.
With distribution on Mt. Kinabalu and Mt. Tambuyukon at 1500-26500 m.a.s.l., the species is a classic highland species.
With generous pitcher fertilization, mineral substrate and suitable cool temperatures, the species is surprisingly fast growing.
Certainly one of the most enjoyable species to keep.

Please note:
This species is protected under appendix I of WA.
The paperwork for WA I species is a very complicated process and takes several weeks from application to receiving the papers.
Therefore, we only ship this species to EU countries.
