Nepenthes vieillardii (Blue River National Park, New Caledonia) FV-002-01

 10 €
N. vieillardii is the only pitcher plant native to the island of New Caledonia and the most eastern occurring Nepenthes. Although it has been in cultivation for several years already, there are only very few people with good-sized plants of this species. The reason being that - unlike most pitcher plants - Nepenthes vieillardii seems to prefer a very well-drained soil and overall drier conditions. It is best suited for bright conservatories or windowsill-setups, which allow significant air circulation.
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 pros

- Best grown in an intermediate temperature regime

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

- Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight

- Requires sufficient airflow
