Tropical pitcher plant 'Nepenthes rafflesiana'

CarniNep38
Specifications
Nepenthes rafflesiana
The pitchers of Nepenthes rafflesiana are exceptionally rich in colour. There are several variations but they all have well-developed fringed wings on the sides of the pitcher cups. They may also have a large opening with a striped pitcher rim or peristome. Although Nepenthes rafflesiana thrives on a high level of humidity and hot temperatures it can be cultivated successfully with less humidity and heat.

Plant care

As with other Nepenthes species, Nepenthes rafflesiana requires a great deal of sunlight, but not direct sunlight or it will become dehydrated. The best temperature to cultivate this species is between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius, certainly no lower than 10 degrees Celsius or higher than 35 degrees. It should be watered regularly with rainwater or distilled water, sprayed with water at regular intervals and kept in an environment with a high level of humidity. The best growing medium is neutral to slightly acidic peat. No additional feeding in the form of plant food is required.
