Nepenthes clipeata (Mt. Kelam, Borneo) FV-030

N. clipeata is without a doubt among the most unique of all pitcher plants, evolving to inhabit an incredibly tough environment on Mount Kelam in West-Kalimantan, Borneo. Excessive poaching and climate change has brought this species close to extinction. Due to its rarity, all of our clones of this batch will be offered as genetically sexed individuals.

Pictured plant is potted in a 7 x 7 cm pot for reference. Sizes may vary slightly.
