Nepenthes truncata (Mindanao, Philippines) FV-003-01

Native to the Philippine islands of Dinagat and Mindanao, this species produces some of the biggest pitchers in the genus. The pitcher body itself can differ quite a lot – from plain green to yellow/orange with single-colored or beautifully striped peristomes – this taxon comes in a wide range of variation, even on the clonal level. Thick, leathery leaves make N. truncata the perfect candidate for low-humidity environments like windowsills or conservatory setups.

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