Product information "Nepenthes sumatrana (Sipogas, Sumatra)"
Nepenthes sumatrana is certainly one of the most spectacular lowland species of the genus Nepenthes.
It is endemic to North and West Sumatra and unfortunately critically endangered.
The yellowish to red lower pitchers are extremely bulbous or cup-shaped with a broad pitcher base and can grow up to 20 cm tall and 10 cm wide (!) The peristome is broadly open and intensely red-yellow striped with prominent elevation between the broad wings.
The upper pitchers can grow up to 30 cm tall and 15 cm wide and are extremely funnel-shaped with the same elevation in the peristome, similar to that found in N. rafflesiana. The upper pitchers are usually orange-red and continue to show the intense peristome. Tendrils in this species can grow up to 60 cm long.
An absolutely impressive and rare species for anyone with a lowland setup with enough space.
