Nepenthes lingulata hails from the Barisan range in Sumatra. It is renowned for producing a long, tongue-like appendage from beneath the lid of its purple pitchers. The plants for sale here are a tissue culture clone from Borneo Exotics (BE-3463) which has been confirmed as the pure species lingulata. I have found it to be grow well under typical highland conditions.
There have been many plants sold as lingulata that were actually hybrids and did not produce the tongue-like appendage. These have included tissue cultured plants from nurseries in Europe as well as seed released plants from many sources. We’ve even grown quite a few seed grown plants that ended up being hybrids in our nursery. The plants for sale here are the real deal! They are the exact clone in all the photos.
