The hybrid was originally produced by Leilani Nepenthes Nursery. When we acquired it, we decided to save it as a mother plant because we saw its potential as a fantastic plant for first-time growers of Nepenthes. The plant acclimates well to household conditions and is a robust grower. The lower pitchers are mottled with reddish brown blotches. As the vine grows, pitchers become lighter in color. Upper pitchers are chartreuse and abundant.
