Nepenthes pervillei (Mt. Copolia, Seychelles) FV-049

Native to the islands of Mahé and Silhouette in the Seychelles, this species independently evolved from the rest of the pitcher plant, adapting to the exposed so-called glacis environment. Unlike most Nepenthes, N. pervillei should be kept in a warm, very bright environment with plenty of airflow. Bright windowsills or conservatories seem to be more appropriate to grow this unique but quite difficult species.

Pictured plant is 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 a lowland temperature regime

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

- Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight

- Requires sufficient airflow

- 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.
