Nepenthes attenboroughii, BE-3693

Regular price $99.99

This species was one of the most magnificent botanical discoveries of the decade!  It bears the name of the famous naturalist David Attenborough and certainly lives up to it.  It hails from the Phillipine island of Palawan where it grows on the ultramafic slopes of Mt. Victoria.  The pitchers are enormous and have been documented to capture small mammals such as rats. It’s a slow and steady grower and prefers highland conditions.  We grow it in mixes with mineral components such as burnt earth, laterite, or fluorite (Seachem) but don’t think it’s a necessity since we’ve seen stunning specimens cultivated in organic mixes.  The plants for sale are from Borneo Exotics, BE-3693.
