One (1) N. truncata ‘SBG’ – single clone: BE-4001 SMALL
Photos are provided by Borneo Exotics and are representative. Plants may or may not currently have pitchers.
This impressive species never fails to attract admirers, with its broad heart-shaped leaves and tough enormous pitchers. It’s a reliable grower, being adaptable to varying conditions.
Description: This particular item was donated in-vitro by Singapore Botanic gardens, hence the ‘SBG’ in the title. Nothing else is known about its provenance. We had assumed that it was most likely a lowland form, but it grows well for us in our highland nurseries, so we have since designated it as an intermediate grower.

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.”
