These plants were imported in September 2022 from Malesiana Tropicals. Since the import they have grown new leaves in our 65-90 greenhouse.

Malesiana Tropicals Description: A large and unusual species from the peat swamps of northwestern Borneo. The sturdy pitchers bear two fangs which protrude from beneath the lid, giving this plant a fearsome appearance. The purpose of these fangs is questionable, but may serve to guide nectar-seeking insects directly over the pitcher mouth where they can easily fall into the fluid below. This species plays host to a symbiotic species of ant which make their nests in the hollow tendrils and are able to swim in the pitcher fluid to retrieve dead insects. Plants originated in the provenance around Sri Aman in Sarawak.

The LAST photo is provided by Malesiana Tropicals and is for reference only. The plant you receive may or may not have pitchers.

This Malesiana Tropicals plant is classified as a lowlander, this means they do best with 80-90F during the day and do not grow/do well if the temperature falls below 60 at night. They also do best in high humidity in range of 70-100%.
