Nepenthes burbidgeae is one of the most beautiful and elegant species in the genus. The coloration on this species is like no other and pitchers often exhibit a shiny, porcelain coloration with rich pink and red striping. They seem hand painted. Nepenthes burbidgeae comes from the Bornean state of Sabah where it can be found growing at mid montane to upper montane elevations. We’ve found it to be tolerant of a range of temperatures and have even kept them in lowland conditions with some success. However, they would be best grown as an intermediate or highland plant.
The plants offered for sale are from Borneo Exotics, BE-3873. These are horticultural bred plants and have exhibited the most vigor of any burbidgeae we’ve ever grown. The parents were selected clones from Pig Hill.
