One (1) Nepenthes ampullaria BE 3681 MEDIUM

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

Details from BE: “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. History: First introduced in March 2006 on our old PDF price list, after we closed our lowland nurseries in 2012, it became unavailable for 5 years. It was added to our shop for the first time in Aug 2018 but only as in-vitro plants in sterile culture. The first time it was offered on our shop as nursery-grown plants was in 2021.
Description: The female parent is the ‘Williams Red’ form of the species, which remains the deepest and purest red form we have ever seen and used to be sold as rooted cuttings under the code CR-1. The male parent is a selected clone of N. ampullaria ‘Harlequin’ that used to be sold as rooted cuttings under CR-48. This particular clone was selected from a large number of candidate clones for its excellent coloration.
Note: The name ‘Harlequin’ refers to the three tone pitcher coloration. It is not a specific cultivar and has been sold over the years as several different clones.
The photos shown here are of the exact clone as plants shipped. The last three photos in the series are of typical small size sale quality plants.
Source: From a single selected clone out of microprop.”

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.”
