Nepenthes Marpesa x clipeata, CAR-0130 is an in-house cross with excellent hybrid vigor while carrying many of the clipeata features. The emerging leaves have red hues and the pitchers have varying colors and spots. We expect them to develop strong waists and domed lids like clipeata as they mature.
Note that Marpesa is a grex of maxima x northiana originally from Leilani Nepenthes nursery. We're unsure if there was some mixed pollination for our plant. It is extremely vigorous and resembles maxima but has few discernable northiana characteristics.
Plants are seed grown individuals so some variability is to be expected.
