Nepenthes platychila

Sale price $49.99 Regular price $59.99

A beautiful species endemic to the Hose Mountains of Central Sarawak featuring one of the most beautiful peristomes of any in the genus.  The lower pitchers are cylindrical and beautifully striped; however, the uppers are its forte and exhibit elaborately flared peristomes. Nepenthes platychila is best grown as an intermediate.  We have grown it as a lowlander and it does fine as well.  Grown as a highlander, platychila will grow but will be slower and only hold 1-2 pitchers at a time.

Plants currently for sale are seed grown 2-3" in diameter from Christian Klein.  There is a possibility hybrids may exist in the batch but looking at the seedlings they seem true to form at this time.

This product is considered a Intermediate Tropical plant.  Please see our Shipping and Guarantees policy for cold/hot weather shipping guidelines.
