Description

Pitcher Plant - Nepenthes - 14cm Hanging Pot

A natural flycatcher for your appartment

Pitchers are forming on their leaves. The lid on pitchers protect them from rain water. Nectar is excreted from them. When licking the nectar, the prey animals slide off the smooth walls and fall into the digestion fluid in which they are dissolved.

There are approx. 77 species at their home habitat Southeast Asia.

German Name: Pitcher plant
Botanic Name: Nepenthes Alata

Origin: Southeast Asia

Size: 14 cm hanging pot and approx. 10-14cm pitchers

Care:
The Pitcher Plant is a tropical plant. It likes it warm and moist. It needs a high humidity in order to form pitchers. It grows especially well in a glass cabinet or a terrarium by a window facing west or east. It can be trimmed if the terrain becomes too small.

Tip:
If the plant will not form any pitchers or only small ones and only grows instead, you should break off the shoot tip. The strength of the plant will then go back to the tips of the leaves, which will create pitchers.
