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.

The first photo is descriptive of the mother plant in our collection.  The last photo is representative of the batch for sale.  Cuttings may initially produce upper pitchers.  After 3-6 months, it may produce lower basal shoots, at which time, the plant will produce lower pitchers.
