Plant care

Nepenthes ampullaria requires a great deal of light but should not be positioned in full sun or it will become dehydrated. This species can cope with a lower level of humidity than other Nepthenes but nevertheless a high level of humidity is desirable. It needs watering generously with rainwater or distilled water that drains easily from the pot. It should be sprayed regularly to ensure the pitchers remain healthy and last longer. The best temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius and certainly no lower than 10 degrees Celsius or higher than 30 degrees Celsius. The best type of growing medium is neutral to slightly acidic peat. The plant can be pruned if it becomes too tall.
