Nepenthes northiana

Sale price $34.99 Regular price $39.99

Nepenthes northiana lives as a lithophyte, inhabiting limestone rock walls near Bau on the island of Borneo.  It's often regarded as the most beautiful Nepenthes in the genus. But it's reputation as a difficult grower is not far fetched either.  Though this can be overcome by giving the plant consistent warm temperatures with high humidity.  We've tested growing our plants under a variety of soils (mineral, coconut, sphaghnum based) and most seemed equivalent as long as you make sure there is good drainage so the roots are aerated.  Though it's a warm grower, it does not appreciate wet feet.  Nepenthes northiana is particularly prone to transplant disturbance so make sure to keep them very humid as they acclimate.
