The large pitchers are real eye-catchers because of their size and their striking green/red colouration. This species of Nepthenes can be grown in a hanging basket or in a normal pot.

Plant care

Nepenthes x “Louise” requires plenty of sunlight but must not be exposed to full sun for fear of dehydration. Like other Nepthenes species, this hybrid requires a high level of humidity for healthy growth. It needs to be kept in a well-drained pot and watered often using rainwater or distilled water. It should also be sprayed with water regularly to ensure the pitchers remain healthy and last longer. The best temperature is between 15 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius and certainly no lower than 10 degrees Celsius or higher than 30 degrees. This plant prefers slightly acidic peat as a growing medium, does not need feeding and can be pruned if it becomes too large.
