Nepenthes tenax (Australia)

Short supply (FAQ)


Product number: AW-N_tenx.1
Product information "Nepenthes tenax (Australia)"
Nepenthes tenax is one of the few Australian representatives of the genus. It is endemic to North Queensland and sympatric with N. mirabilis and N. rowaniae. Due to the extensive plains in Australia, N. tenax only occurs at altitudes of 0-80 m.a.s.l., making it an absolute lowland species.
Australian Nepenthes species grow mostly in wet substrates or are even flooded at times.
The pitchers are green-yellowish, very elongated and often exceptionally large for the leaf. The lid of the pitcher is usually bright red and forms a contrast to the otherwise primarily monochrome pitcher.
Very interesting species with unusual ecology.
