One (1) N. ampullaria – Papua intermediate BE-3450 – Large
YES – an ampullaria that is considered an intermediate!
Photo(s) are provided by Borneo Exotics and are representative. Plants may or may not currently have pitchers.
This swamp-dwelling species is one of the few that will develop basal rosettes when larger giving the appearance of a carpet of pitchers with no leaves. Loves high temperatures and humidity. Pitchers are globose and vary enormously in colouration. A lightly speckled form of the species from about 750m altitude in Papua. This is the first release of this species we have made from a source other than near sea level and it may be expected to tolerate cooler growing conditions than other varieties of the species.
Ships bareroot. Roots will be wrapped in sphagnum moss, but you will need to provide your own pot and more potting substrate when the plant arrives. Extra care will be needed as the pre-order plants will need to be acclimated slowly to your conditions. This means low light and high humidity. Check out this video that I helped write for the ICPS on “How to acclimate your carnivorous plants.”
