Nepenthes hirsuta (Bako National Park, Borneo) FV-015-01

 12 €
This lowland species is endemic to the island of Borneo, particularly widespread in Brunei and Sarawak. The name hirsuta (hairy) refers to the dense hairs covering the stems of the plant. The majority of plants produce green to yellow colored pitchers with purple marks in the interior, but few speckled forms have been observed in the wild as well.
Pictured plants are potted in a 7 x 7 cm pot for reference. Sizes may vary slightly.
Choose your plant:

Slowly acclimate pitcher plants you got from us to your growing conditions by keeping them in a humid environment. They may lose their pitchers due to the sudden environmental changes; however, we can assure you that new ones will be forming in no time.


Growing tips:

- A plant for experienced growers

- Best grown in a lowland temperature regime

- Peat or Sphagnum-based soil mix supplemented with horticultural grade perlite

- Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight

- Requires high humidity

- Avoid overwatering

- If perfectly established, feeding or careful fertilization benefits growth

Your plants will be sent unpotted wrapped in some high-quality Sphagnum moss. Please make sure to have soil components and pots ready upon delivery, so you are immediately able to take care of your purchase.
