Nepenthes alata - 'Pitcher plant'
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright light, a southern window would be perfect. If you see leaf burn move 1-2 feet away from the window.
Watering: Nepenthes like to have evenly moist, but well draining soil. Water with mineral-free water from overhead.
Humidity: High humidity is necessary to maintain this plant and the pitchers. If you see the pitchers starting to brown, increase humidity.
Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature of 15C+.
Soil/Nutrients: A soil mix of peat, sand, perlite, orchid bark, and chopped Sphagnum works well.Aim to repot during active growing times.
Good to know: Plants that have just been shipped will be stressed, they may not look as beautiful as the picture and will need time to bounce back. How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
Sizing: 6" Hanging basket (HB) ***CERAMIC POT NOT INCLUDED***
