This hybrid has the colorful features of Nepenthes maxima and the shapely elegance of Nepenthes campanulata. While it grows well as a houseplant, it will require warm nights (above 65°F), warm days (above 75°F), and partial sunlight to keep see its pitchers. We frequently see this plant produce pitchers in late summer when the weather is comfortable and sunny.
Original mother plant was produced by Leilani Nepenthes Nursery.
