Plant care

Nepthenes ventricosa requires a great deal of sunlight. However, direct sunlight will result in dehydration of the plant and should therefore be avoided. The best temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius but in any case no lower than 10 degrees or higher than 30 degrees. The plant needs watering regularly with rainwater or distilled water. Tap water can lead to excessive mineral deposits around the plant’s delicate roots. Nepenthes ventricosa needs spraying at regular intervals and a relatively high level of humidity. The best growing medium is neutral to slightly acid peat. No additional feeding is required.
