One (1) N. pelta BE-4025 SMALL

Photos are provided by Borneo Exotics and are representative.  Plants may or may not currently have pitchers.

Details from BE: “Nepenthes peltata is endemic to Mindanao in the Philippines, where it grows at altitudes ranging from about 800 – 1,600m making it a temperature tolerant intermediate grower. As the name implies, the tendril insertion into the leaf is peltate, emerging before the tip of the leaf. It’s quite variable in form but is always colorful and often has leaves with a red underside. Pitchers can become quite large, as the photos show.

The pitcher form and leaf attachment seem somewhat variable as can be seen from the photos, but so far as we are aware, all clones sold under this item match the species description. We’ve noticed on the few mature plants we have that the glands beneath the lid sometimes exude a thick white nectar and this is shown on the last two photos in the series. It’s not as prolific an exudate as on N. lowii or N. ephippiata, but it’s still unusually dense. We wonder whether it might perhaps be due to as a yet undocumented symbiotic or mutualistic relationship with an animal?”

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. 
This is a Pre-order item, whose details can be read here.
