Nepenthes alata, Nepenthes graciliflora, Winged Nepenthes, Pitcher Plant

Nepenthes alata, Nepenthes graciliflora

Winged Nepenthes, Pitcher Plant
Family: Nepenthaceae
Origin: Philippines
Vine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterUnusual color

Carnivorous climbing vine. Passive pitfall traps produced at the tips of the leaves trap and digest small insects.

In 2013, Nepenthes alata was redelimited by Martin Cheek and Matthew Jebb to encompass only those populations from northern and central Luzon with conspicuously hairy pitchers (a taxon known in horticultural circles as the "hairy N. alata") Under this interpretation, the more southerly plants previously referred to this species actually represent the newly resurrected N. graciliflora (the "typical N. alata" of horticulture)

Nepenthes alata (graciliflora) - Pitcher Plant

Pitcher plant does well in both cooler or warmer conditions. Tubby pitchers may be constricted at the waist, pale green to red-infused, while the stems are compact. Passive pitfall traps produced at the tips of the leaves trap and digest small insects. Color of the pitchers light-green, often with light or dark-red or violet spots.
Nepenthes are extremely versatile and adaptable to many different growing conditions. The number one choice to try on a windowsill or tank, very easy, vigorous and attractive.
Do not fertilize these plants with dry fertilizer! They get all their food from "eating" insects! If you are growing the plant where it cannot catch insects for long periods, you can add an occasional small insect such as a fly, a cockroach or a few very small insects to mature pitchers. Many types benefit from very mild, diluted liquid orchid fertilizer such as SUNSHINE Orchidasm, and solution should be added only to the pitchers when they are 3/4 filled with water.
