One (1) N. rafflesiana ‘Kalimantan’ – assorted clones BE-4571 MEDIUM

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


Nepenthes rafflesiana is a classic lowland species found across Borneo, Sumatra and Peninsular Malaysia. The upper pitchers are very different in form from the lower pitchers, and within the species itself, there is a great deal of variability in the size morphology and coloration of pitchers, even across individuals within the same colony of plants. It hybridizes regularly in habitat with nearby species, including N. gracilis, N. ampullaria, N. bicalcarata and various forms of N. mirabilis, to name but a few. In any colony of Nepenthes rafflesiana, it’s common to find hybrids, unless it’s very geographically isolated from other species. Therefore, it’s unlikely that there is any such thing as “pure” Nepenthes rafflesiana, which may explain the wide range of variability observed in habitat.

Origin: West Kalimantan.

Ships bareroot. 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.”
