Nepenthes peltata (Mt. Hamiguitan, Philippines) FV-004-01

N. peltata is among six species of pitcher plants endemic to Mount Hamiguitan on the Philippine island of Mindanao. It predominantly grows on ultramafic soil, exposed to the environment, resulting in a very rigid, leathery and hairy foliage. Adult specimens produce beautifully squat pitchers, often times with striped peristomes and red-speckled pitcher bodies.

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