Plant care

Nepenthes x hookeriana requires plenty of sunlight, but not full sun or it will become dehydrated. The best temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius, certainly no lower than 10 degrees Celsius or higher than 30 degrees. The plant needs plenty of rainwater or distilled water and a well-drained pot. It also needs spraying regularly with water so the pitchers retain water. Nepenthes x hookeriana needs a relatively high level of humidity, thrives in neutral to slightly acidic peat and requires feeding. It can be pruned if it becomes too big.
