AW-H_BC.2 Heliamphora "Black Cherry"
Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply A very beautyful hybrid or a mutant of Heliamphora heterodoxa? This originates from H. heterodoxa seeds that possibly were cross pollinated with something else from my greenhouse by an insect? I consider to register it as Heliamphora "Black Cherry" The lids are almost black and glossy! Very nice!

AW-H_Spider.2 Heliamphora "Spiderweb"
Clone: 01 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size A selected clone of Heliamphora chimantensis x pulchella. It's notable for its red veins forming a pattern that is reminiscent of a spiderweb. I plan to register this plant as a cultivar - Heliamphora "Spiderweb" Only very few divisions are available.

AW-Hx_hjXexar.1 Heliamphora (heterodoxa x ionasi) x exappendiculata Araopan
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Adult Now 25.00 Our selected clone of Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasi is characterized by its extraordinary vigor and robustness. I know plants that spend the summer in bog beds or simply without protection on the balcony or terrace. Even under such sub-optimal conditions the plants reach a n impressive size.
This robustness is, in my experience, well inherited and I expect that Heliamphora (heterodoxa x ionasi) x exappendiculata Araopan is also an exceptionally easy cross suitable for beginners.

AW-H_areni.1 Heliamphora arenicola (Tramen Tepui)
Clone: 01 | Size: Juvenile pitchers Short supply This close relative of Heliamphora elongata and nutans is quite fascinating in its unusual preference for sandy soils (hence the name: arena-sand and cola-dweller). Found at elevations below 2000m on the western slopes of the Ilu Tramen Massif, this Heliamphora stands out with its chartreuse colored pitchers and bright red nectar spoons. The overall effect is vibrant against the surrounding vegetation of Stegolepis spp and low growing grass-like plants. Heliamphora arenicola appears most abundant in small, flat, open, sun-blasted clearings. In these exposed areas the plants can be quite numerous though they often appear stunted. Unlike the majority of Heliamphora which favor organic substrates, arenicola is found almost exclusively growing in pure white silica sand or soils with very high quartzitic sand content. Quite unusual! Because the species’ range is not yet fully understood and a possible hybrid with ionasi has been collected on the western slope of neighboring Karaurin tepui, it is hypothesized that the plant might be present on top of that mountain. Heliamphora arenicola stays fairly compact both in nature and in cultivation, typically growing to about 18cm in height. It is similar to both elongata and nutans though its unique coloring, smaller spoon size, and habitat preference distinguish it from those species. A worthy addition to the Heliamphora collection! (Wistuba, A. Fleischm., Nerz & S. McPherson, 2011)

AW-H_cil.11 Heliamphora ciliata (Lowland)
Clone: D | Size: Adult pitchers - young Short supply Ever heard of a lowland Heliamphora? Meet Heliamphora ciliata! It is the only Heliamphora known exclusively from sub-montane regions. Found in a few swampy meadows north-east of Aprada Tepui in the Gran Sabana at elevation of around 900m, this species grows in permanently moist to inundated soils among low growing vegetation. The name ciliata refers to the tufts of hairs on the back of the nectar spoon and along the back of the pitcher mid-rib. The interior of the pitchers is also lined in two distinctive types of hairs, a shorter and a longer one, that contribute to the overall hairy look of the plant. Pitchers easily color red in bright light and are noted for not having a drainage hole. Instead a narrow slit is present at the front of the pitcher which regulates water level in a manner similar to chimantensis, minor, and pulchella which are closely related. The oval spoon comes off a triangular neck and is typically held at a 45 degree angle above the pitcher opening. Small colonies of ciliata up to 35cm in width can be found in habitat, and similarly the plant readily clumps in cultivation, forming attractive mounds over time. Although it can reach 20cm height in nature, it is usually shorter in cultivation. This easy, fast growing, temperature tolerant species comes highly recommended. Excellent beginner plant! (Wistuba, Nerz & A. Fleischm. 2009)

AW-H_col.1 Heliamphora collina (Foothills Testigos)
Clone: Sel1-R | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply Heliamphora collina (Foothills Testigos) Nicknamed “The Little Folliculata” this wonderful species is a great choice for people who like the overall look of folliculata but prefer plants that are more compact. Growing at the foothills of the Lost Testigos Massif, neighboring hills and lower tepuis, and possibly at the base of Ptari Tepui, collina is fairly wide spread at elevations of 1700-1825m. The name refers to the species preference for colline (or hilly) habitat where it grows in wet substrate and favors seepage sites among low growing but dense vegetation. Sometimes the plant can be completely covered in moss or leaf litter with only the wide circular pitcher opening visible. The pitchers are a pale yellow green and look similar to folliculata though they are smaller, less cylindrical, and produce a nectar spoon that does not form a chamber. Drainage hole is present at the mid-section. In habitat collina pitchers can be up to 25cm in length, but in cultivations the plants remain smaller, typically up to 15-18cm at the most. They clump easily producing attractive rosettes which are more upright than folliculata. This easy, compact, and forgiving species should be in every collection. Recommended for beginners! (Wistuba, Nerz, S McPherson, A. Fleishm. 2011)

AW-H_ex_apc_EWK.1 Heliamphora exappendiculata (Apc.) - "Ewok"
Clone: 01 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply Spectacular new selection! This clone is notable for the extreme hairiness and small size. Very nice and easy grower. I plan to register this as a cultivar with name "Ewok" ;-) Last year I sold several divisions as "Hairy dwarf" but as a Star Wars aficionado since childhood days, I think "Ewok" might be a better name. This is not from tissue culture! I only propagate this clone by division. Very limited!

AW-H_hub_Am_BF.2 Heliamphora huberi (Amuri Tepui)
Clone: 02 | Size: Adult Little known, though widely distributed, Heliamphora huberi is endemic to the Chimanta Massif and is present on several of the tepuis and associated areas. The name honors Dr. Otto Huber, a botanist who has contributed greatly to the knowledge of tepui flora, and who collected the type specimen on Angassima Tepui in 1986. Heliamphora huberi grows in partially shaded habitat among dense low-growing vegetation at elevation between 1850-2200m. The plants tend to form small clusters of offshoots up to 40cm across that are often scattered, though large strands are also found on Akopan Tepui. The distinctive feature of this species is its oval nectar spoon that comes off a short neck-like elongation at the back of the pitcher and has a pronounced upturned appendage at the tip. The pitchers themselves are up to 30cm tall in the wild (though much smaller in cultivation) and their morphology suggest a hybridogenic origin between a species akin to H. heterodoxa and perhaps pulchella. Very interesting! Their color is a pale green which suffuses to red or purple towards the margins, with faint red or purple veining in the interior. When exposed to more light and as the pitchers mature they often become redder. This wonderful species deserves to be grown more widely. Though not a fast grower, it’s a beautiful addition to the collection with its curiously shaped spoons. A mature plant can look very striking. (Fleischmann, A., A. Wistuba & J. Nerz, 2009)

AW-H_ion.4 Heliamphora ionasi (Ilu Tepui, Venezuela)
Clone: MS-Ges | Size: Adult pitchers - young Truly one of the most magnificent members of the genus and one of the biggest! Though often slow growing, H. ionasi is worth the wait, and a fully mature plant can be the crown jewel of the Heliamphora collection. The name commemorates Jonah Boyan, a member of Maguires’ expedition that led to the discovery of the species, and represents his Latinized first name. The known range of the species is between 1800-2600m in the area between Ilu and Tramen Tepui in Venezuela. The plants are most abundant in open boggy clearings along the sides of the Ilu-Tramen valley, though they can also compete successfully with the dense vegetation of the cloud forest floor, and even grow directly on permanently wet cliff sides in a manner similar to H. exappendiculata and H. uncinata. Pitcher size varies greatly depending on habitat- some are only 20-30cm in length, while others can be up to 50cm long and 18cm wide! The pitcher opening is exceptionally wide and often circular. This may serve the dual purpose of trapping pray and collecting organic debris as an additional source of nutrients. In some cases, the opening is the only part of the plant that is visible above the surrounding vegetation. The pitchers are typically held at an acute angle away from the apex, which might help keep the growth point exposed to light. In cultivation this means the plants like to sprawl, so ample space should be provided. Long downward facing hairs up to 11mm (longest in the genus) line the pitcher interior. They come off distinctive bumps which can be used to positively identify the species from hybrids with H. elongata and H. arenicola. A drainage hole is present at the narrow waist. Pitcher color is typically a vibrant peach suffused with pinks and reds even in lower light (though they can be completely red or green too). The nectar spoon is red, oval, and can be variously angled towards or away from the opening. Although this has never been observed in nature, Heliamphora ionasi pitcher are certainly voluminous enough to potentially trap rodent pray! These majestic, brightly colored, and elegantly shaped plants are a must for any serious collector of the genus. (Maguire, B., 1978)

AW-H_mcd.4 Heliamphora macdonaldae (Cerro Duida, Venezuela)
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Adult pitchers - young Short supply If there is a Queen Heliamphora, it most certainly is H. macdonaldae! It is considered by many the most beautiful in the genus because of its stately yellow-green pitchers with crimson red veined waxy interiors and handsome ruby red spoons. A lining of small rim hairs at the opening enhances the appeal. Spectacular! Heliamphora macdonaldae was one of the earliest species to be discovered (together with H. tatei and the now synonymous H. tyleri) during the Tyler-Duida Expedition organized by the American Museum of Natural History in 1928. It is known to occur at altitudes of 1500-2300m on the summit of Cerro Duida and surrounding hills and tepuis in a remote inaccessible area of the Venezuelan rainforest. Although the species has been known for many years, the remoteness of its habitat has made seed collection and its consequent introduction in horticulture difficult, and so it’s only recently become available. The habitat of this species consists of exposed, waterlogged areas, often surrounded by scrub vegetation. Generally, plants form a compact rosette on the ground, holding few live pitchers at a time, surrounded by several dead ones. On rare occasion, very old specimen can form an upright stem up to 30cm. The plants typically grow singly and are sparsely scattered. Pitchers can reach up to 40cm in height (though usually around 30cm) and are elongated in the upper part with a low waist where a drainage hole is present. In cultivation, plants remain more compact, though similarly holding only few live pitchers at a time, and do not produce stems. This incredible species is a steady grower, and every new pitcher is a joy to watch unfold! Finally available! (Gleason, 1931)

AW-H_min_BO.4 Heliamphora minor "Big Orange"
Clone: 02 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply A staple for growers who like compact Heliamphora, H. minor is one of the most widely cultivated species. Though different clones can vary significantly in their growth rate, color, and overall size, the plants always stay manageable and easily fit into every collection. Unevenly distributed on the summits of Auyan Tepui (at 1900-2500m) and the much smaller Cerro la Luna (as low as 1650m), this species favors mixed plant communities which enjoy mutual shelter from the elements. In these situations, H. minor can form tightly packed hummocks up to 1m across. The soil in which the plants grow is frequently inundated and at times the water level on the outside and the inside of the pitchers is virtually the same. Pitchers are typically up to 15cm tall and do not have a drainage hole (instead a narrow slit extends down to the mid-sections and regulated the water within). The spoons are generally oval and held at a 45 degree angle above the pitcher opening on a narrow neck. Two subspecies are recognized: H. minor v minor and H. minor v pilosa. The latter is distinguished by its dense cover of long hairs both on the exterior and the interior of the pitchers, giving it an overall fuzzy look. No intermediate forms have been observed between the two subspecies even though strands can often grow in close proximity. Heliamphora minor is an extremely variable species. Please refer to specific clone information for details. Because there are many selections available, it is very much worthwhile to grow different clones, especially if small Heliamphora are favored. (Gleason, H. A. & E. P. Killip, 1939)
After the fabulous H. minor "Burgundy Black" this is the next selected clone we release. Pitchers are fairly upright and colored in orange to red. A very nice and easy plant!

AW-H_min_pil_A_06.4 Heliamphora minor var. pilosa (Auyan) - various clones
Clone: 08 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply As most Heliamphoras this species needs lots of light, cool nights and does not like permanent misting. The plants can be grown in various peaty mixes, however many growers prefer pure living Shagnum-moss. In recent times dead Sphagnum of very high quality from Chile and New-Zealand became widely available. A mix of such moss with horticultural-grade Perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pinebark-choppings makes an excellent mix. However, when using Sphagnum-moss, it’s important to allow for a good drainage as otherwise, Sphagnum has the tendency to rot quickly. Please note, that all Heliamphoras require good illumination. They can, however easily be grown indoors under fluorescent tubes as long as they are close to the lights and temparature requirements can be met. Many growers in fact prefer to grow them in terrariums under fluorescent tubes from cultivatiing Heliamphora in the greenhouse

AW-Hx_minPilXmcd.16 Heliamphora minor var. pilosa x macdonaldae
Clone: 09 | Size: Adult Short supply One of my best crosses! This cross combines almost ideally the best features of both species. The interesting lid shape comes from Heliamphora minor. However, the lid is clearly enlarged compared to H. minor. All offered and pre-selected clones show a nice veining - a characteristic of Heliamphora macdonaldae. I am still looking for my 2-3 favorites at the moment. Since I cannot propagate all pre-selected clones, this is the last chance to acquire some of them. In the future I will only propagate and offer the final selection of my 2-3 favorite clones.

AW-H_neb_N.6 Heliamphora neblinae (Cerro Neblina, Braz. Ven.)
Clone: R_vir2 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply Price now 60.00 Tall, handsome plants that grow slowly and require patience but are quite striking when mature and provide vertical interest in the collection. Worth the wait!
Originally collected in 1953-1954 during the initial exploration of the Neblina Massif on the border of Brazil and Venezuela, this species was named in 1978 after the area. Though populations can be found there at elevations of 2000-2200m, it was later discovered to be much more wide spread on neighboring Cerro Avispa and Cerro Aracamuri, where it is the only Heliamphora present and it can grow as low as 860m (the lowest occurring Heliamphora so far discovered). The plants favor shrubby, heavily vegetated habitat, and partial light. To add to the uniqueness of the species, H. neblinae has the longest pitchers known in the genus, and though the majority are 35-45cm, they can reach 50-60cm! In addition, stems are produced occasionally, typically no more than 30cm, but- in at least one exceptional case- a herbarium specimen is recorded having a stem 2m tall! Pitchers are uniformly light green with a contrasting smooth vibrant red stripe running down the back of the interior, with a matching red marginal line on the outside. The red spoons arise from this area seemingly as a continuation of the stripe. Their shape can be variable but is generally flat with wavy margins, and upright. Pitchers are low-waisted, and have a drainage hole. Only a few live pitchers are held on the plant at a time, often surrounded by several dead ones. Heliamphora neblinae is better suited for experienced growers due to its slow growth rate and tendency to take a while before displaying its distinctive morphology. This said, it is a rewarding species to grow, and the end result can be quite spectacular! (Maguire, B., 1978)

Resauct22002-AW-H_nutg Heliamphora nutans (Giant Form) - Auktion - 5 plants with adult pitchers - auction for resellers only. Easy, vigorous, and much bigger than typical H. nutans!is not really clear where these plants originate. They were grown in the Oxford Botanical Garden (UK) for decades but apparently nobody knows where the mother plants were collected. Nowadays, it is believed that Heliamphora nutans "Giant" is in fact a natural hybrid of H. glabra and H. nutans, and so, it is no surprise that the offspring does not come true from seed. In habitat, this hybrid is locally abundant and, in fact, it often outnumbers both parent species in areas where their population converge. So far, it has been found on Mt Roraima, Wei Assipu Tepui, and Maringma Tepui. The mericlone offered is the real thing! It shows exceptional vigor and large size. This is an excellent and beautiful beginner plant. Highly recommended! 1
AW-H_pulchim.1 Heliamphora pulchella (Chimanta Tepui)
Clone: 01 | Size: Adult pitchers - flowering size Short supply The Beautiful Heliamphora (from pulcher-beautiful) certainly earns its namesake with its attractive foliage which looks almost ornamental in habitat. This species is a must for people who like compact clumping plants! H. pulchella is one of the most ecologically adaptable, variable, and widely distributed taxa in the genus. It is found between 1850-2550m elevation in a range of habitats throughout the desiccated Chimanta Massif and surrounding tepuis- from marshy savannahs, to open clearings in Bonnetia forests and scrub vegetation, and in hummocks near shallow ponds and streams. In some situations, the plants can be completely submersed in water for a period of time! The foliage is generally stout (up to 12cm) with a wide opening that can be heart or bell shaped due to an incurve in the back from which the spoon emerges. The spoons are typically helmet shaped and held directly over the pitcher opening. A narrow slit at the front of the pitcher regulates the water level. Distinctive long retentive hairs are present in the pitcher interior that are often paired with a fine coating of small hairs. This gives the interior a beautiful silvery sheen. In some populations the long hairs are variously absent from portions of the interior, or completely non present. Both foliage and spoon are an even shade of dark red, maroon, or purple in strong light. In lower light, the foliage becomes a muted green, sometimes with faint red veins in the upper section. Several clones of this diminutive plant are offered and all have their merits. Though somewhat slow growing and favoring lower light than typical of the genus, H. pulchella is an excellent choice for the small species lover. (Wistuba, A., T. Carow, P. Harbarth & J. Nerz, 2005)

AW-H_hetpt.2 Heliamphora purpurascens (Ptari Tepui)
Clone: Randomly selected from various clones (RSC) | Size: Adult pitchers - young Short supply Fascinating species noted for having exceptionally big nectar spoons. Different looking and a steady grower! H. purpurascens was (like many other species in the genus) classified as H. heterodoxa until 2011 when it was elevated to specific status. The habitat of this species is limited to the small summit of Ptari Tepui at elevetions of 2400-2450m. Unlike many other tepuis, this summit is extremely flat and there is no shelter from the elements. As a result vegetation is short and scant. Here, H. pupurascens grows in very wet boggy areas in what little peaty substrate can accumulate. The plants often form small hummocks of mixed tepui flora that rise above the surrounding water like little islands! Very cool! Like H. elongata which grows in a similarly harsh environment, H. purpurascens forms tight rosettes of upright pitchers that are elongated above the waist. Few live pitchers are held at a time often surrounded by several dead ones. Water level is regulated by a drainage hole at the waist. The helmet shaped spoons have a wide triangular base and are proportionately very large (especially in relation to other members of the genus). They are typically bent sharply towards the front of the leaf. Pitchers are up to 25cm tall (typically a little less in cultivation) and have a curious somewhat woody substance. This species poses no difficulties in cultivation and makes for an interesting addition to the collection with its oversized spoons.

AW-N_amptay_06.2 Nepenthes ampullaria, orange leaf (Tayeve, Irian Jaya)
Size: Ø 15-20 cm Large form of this wonderful species with orange pitchers. Nepenthes ampullaria clearly belongs to the plants with unusual growth habit. In Nepenthes ampullaria, from a certain size of the main shoot, a large number of basals are formed, which are characterized by large pitchers on vanishingly small leaves. From a certain age onwards, this can lead to a sea of large basal pitchers being formed around the main shoot, which seem to simply stand freely on the ground. This is N. ampullaria's way of "detrivory", using detritus falling into the pichers as fertilizer. However, these lower pitchers also provide habitat and shelter for many animal species. Even one of the smallest frog species discovered to date, Microhyla nepenthicola, uses the pots as a spawning ground. In the wild, N. ampullaria inhabits swampy forest areas in Borneo, New Guinea, Malaysia, the Maluku Islands, Singapor, Sumatra, Thailand and other small areas below 1000 m.a.s.l. (higher altitudes, however, have already been recorded). This makes the species one of the most widespread of the genus. The almost spherical, laterally flattened pitchers are absolutely characteristic for this species. Extremely interesting species for every lowland setup, if the space for larger plants is given.

AW-N_bic.2 Nepenthes bicalcarata (Sipitang, Borneo)
Clone: 02F | Size: Ø 10-15 cm This carnivorous plant is probably one of the most spectacular and best-known pitcher plants. With nectar glands on its peristome and the two teeth, the plant lures its victims. The two prominent teeth give the plant it's name (Latin: bi = "two" - calcaratus = "spur"). The green, orange or red lower pitchers are big-bellied and upper pitchers become egg-shaped. Also eye-catching are the long leaves which can reach a length of 90cm. Nepenthes bicalcarata is often found together with N. ampullaria on acidic or sandy soils. Nepenthes bicalcarata was first described 1873 by Joseph D. Hooker and is only found in the lowlands of Borneo. Nepenthes bicalcarata lives in symbiosis with ants (Camponotus schmitzi). The close associaton with ants was already noted by Burbidge in 1880. This symbiosis is unique among all carnivorous plants making it the only Ant Plant among all carnivorous plants that is known so far. The ants live in the hollow and swollen tendrils and feef from the pray that's caught by N. bicalcarata. Camponotus schmitzii is completely dependent on it's host for both food and domatia offered them and cannot survive without N. bicalcarata. It's able to swim and dive to salvage dead insects from the digestive pitcher fluid. It's not harmed by the digestion enzymes and can climb the inner pitcher surface and peristome. Both surfaces are too slippery for most other insects. While Nepenthes bicalcarata can also survive without ants, Camponotus schmitzii pay their rent by protecting the plants from herbivores and pests and preventing an over accumulation of pray in the pitchers.
Easy to grow under hot climate.

AW-N_bong_JN.2 Nepenthes bongso (Gunung Merapi, Sumatra)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Short supply Nepenthes bongso is a great species for lovers of black pitchers. The plants offered here correspond to the typical picture of this species. This species is common in Sumatra at 1000-2700 m.a.s.l..
The pitchers open mostly yellow-orange and then change successively into a black color. N. bongso produces cup-shaped pitchers with a large, broad peristome that is black and ribbed. The upper pitchers are funnel-shaped and unexpectedly bright in relation to the lower pitchers; they can be almost white, which is a particularly nice contrast. The leaves are slightly peltate. Great, robust species, which usually makes little problems in the attitude, but has much to offer!

Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø > 30 cm Now 50.00 Small batch release Nepenthes boschiana x adrianii combines two species, with bright red, shiny peristome, which often subsequently turns to a dark red-purple in N. boschiana. This hybrid opens its pitchers with a broad, bright red peristome, which then folds back and darkens. The corrugation of the pitchers of N. adrianii is still clearly visible in the hybrid.
The body of the pitcher looks very similar to that of N. boschiana.
A successful hybrid of two uncomplicated species.

AW-Nx_burkXpito.1 Nepenthes burkei x pitopangii
Clone: Randomly selected from various clones (RSC) | Size: Ø 8-15 cm Short supply Nepenthes pitopangii hybrids are still very rare. The lower pitchers are very compact and bulbous with a mostly red base coloration, which is however very variable. The peristome is slightly oval and ribbed, as in Nepenthes burkei. Nepenthes burkei also shows bulbous lower pitchers with a distinct hip and green coloration with red spots. The peristome is red and serrated. To be expected are compact lowers with a probably red peristome and green-red can body.
The upper pitchers will be really interesting as they are extremely funnel shaped in Nepenthes pitopangii. How much will this be seen in the high pitchers of this hybrid? It remains to be seen.

AW-Nx_chanXmoll.1 Nepenthes chaniana x mollis
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 8-10 cm Short supply Nepenthes chaniana x mollis shows very pretty lower pitchers. The pitchers have a yellow-green ground colour with many dark red spots. A poison green peristome with red stripes and a green lid speckled with red. The pitcher shape can be described as slender and funnel-shaped and largely corresponds to that of N. chaniana. The leaves are extremely hairy on the underside, and so is the petiolus. This hybrid can also be described as trouble-free and continues to grow even under suboptimal conditions.

AW-Nx_chanXspectBH.2 Nepenthes chaniana x spectabilis (Giant Bandahara)
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø > 20 cm Now 18.00 Nepenthes chaniana with the hairy, funnel-shaped pitchers as a cross with the Giant form of N. spectabilis. Nepenthes spectabilis does not bear its name for nothing, the colouration and patterning of the pitchers and peristome is absolutely spectacular and often dominant in hybrids, so these hybrids do not disappoint.

AW-N_clip.5 Nepenthes clipeata
Clone: U | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply Now 30.00 Nepenthes clipeata is notable for the big-bellied pitchers with a long funnel – similar to a wasp waist - and the roundish hairy peltate leaves to which the name is refering (Latin: clipeus = "round-shield"). This extaordinary species only producs one type of pitchers that can reach a maximum height of 30cm. Nepenthes clipeata does not vine. The shoots stay relatively short and reach a length of two meters. Nepenthes clipeata was first collectet 1894 by J. G. Hallier and is only to be found on the vertical granite cliff of Mount Kelam in Kalimantan. Probably the most endangered nepenthes with an extreme small wild population by now Nepenthes clipeata is almost extinct in the wild. So plants in cultivation should be grown with great care as they might soon be the only survivors of this unique species! This carnivorous plant is one of the most spectacular and desired species growing in lowland areas of Borneo.

AW-Nx_copXlow.3 Nepenthes copelandii x lowii
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø > 30 cm A hybrid that already shows compact bulbous pitchers with a broad, (dark) red peristome in the base pitchers. Already other N. lowii hybrids show that elongated pitchers in combination with N. lowii upper pitchers become strongly funnel-shaped. Here you have the exceptional vigour of N. copelandii in combination with N. lowii and can look forward to a problem-free hybrid with red, funnel-shaped uppers.

AW-N_dans.2 Nepenthes danseri (Waigeo)
Clone: J3 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply A little known Nepenthes that can only be found on the remote Waigeo Island. Waigeo is off the north-west coast of New Guinea. There the species is found at 0-320 m.a.s.l. in the lowlands. This isolated location has resulted in the species being one of those that are less closely related to most other, Southeast Asian species due to their geographic location and have been evolving independently for a long time. The upper pitchers of this species are tubular, with a broad pitcher base and edge-forming reduced wings. The base pitchers still have wings but are similar in shape. The color of the pitchers is very light, usually yellow-green with varying degrees of red blotches. Very rare, unusual species of the genus

AW-Nx_diabXham_SMID.2 Nepenthes diabolica x hamata
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm The legendary Nepenthes x "Smilodon", a hybrid of N. hamata and N. diabolica, formerly known as N. sp. "Red hairy hamata". As the old trivial name of N. diabolica indicates, both species are very similar. Both strongly toothed, N. hamata black, N. diabolica red and extremely hairy, even on the pitchers. The sought-after N. x "Smilodon" shows very dark, purple pitchers with a velvety exterior and pitch-black, shiny peristome and conspicuously large teeth. The lid is hairy.

AW-N_dub_M.7 Nepenthes dubia (Malea, Sumatra)
Clone: 06 | Size: Vine Short supply Nepenthes dubia is known from only two mountains: Mount Talakmau, West Sumatra (1800-2700m asl), and Gunung Malea, North Sumatra (1600m - 2200m asl). These plants are from the second and more recently discovered location. The lower pitchers of this variety are reddish, and often quite dark. Young plants are much more colorful than comparable plants from G. Talamau. The upper pitchers on this form are pure yellow or yellowish green, as opposed to the more orange uppers from G. Talamau. Intermediate pitchers are often striped. Nepenthes dubia is a diminutive and dainty species known from only two peaks in the Barisan mountain range of Sumatra. N. dubia is found growing in mossy forests, either epiphytically at lower elevations, or terrestrially in moss clumps at high altitudes (2200m+) amongst the stunted alpine vegetation. It is a true highland plant, though faster growing than many other highlanders. The name ëdubiaí is latin for ìdoubtfulî referring itís similarity to N. inermis and initially being mistaken for a possible hybrid. Lower pitchers are rarely produced and relatively small, with the rosette stage being short lived. N. dubia quickly vines producing elegant and dainty upper pitchers (8cm). Pitchers are funnel shaped, with the lower part appearing as if pinched and flattened from either side. This creates a very unique and unusual look. While these pitchers strongly resemble those of N. inermis, they differ in having a well-developed peristome. The peristome is relatively (to the small pitcher size) broad and flat, lying horizontally so that the pitchers open upwards. The pitcher lid in N. dubia is also unique in almost always being bent backwards by more than 180 degrees relative to the pitcher opening. The upper pitchers of this species are generally light green to green-yellow in colour, though orange and red forms exist. Lower pitchers are often more colourful, being orange to red in colour. All pitchers produce especially viscous pitcher fluid similar to that found in N. inermis and a few other Sumatran species. This is hypothesized to enable pitchers to function as flypaper traps as well as typical pitfall traps. The characteristic red to purple tendrils found on the majority of plants are also a notable and interesting feature. Overall both plant and pitchers, while remaining small and elegant, possess lots of interesting detail and are incredibly unique and charming. Cultivation Guidelines: Light: Bright indirect or dappled light Temperature: True highland conditions. Requires cool night time temperatures. Growing medium: An open, mossy but well-draining mix. A mix of high quality sphagnum moss with horticultural-grade perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pine bark works well. The proportion of Sphagnum in the mix should ideally be quite high. Extra notes on Cultivation: Appreciates high humidity levels.

AW-N_glab.2 Nepenthes glabrata (Sulawesi)
Clone: 01 | Size: Vine Nepenthes glabrata is an often underestimated species from the highlands of Sulawesi. The epithet "glabrata" stands for "hairless" and describes the trichome-free leaves and pitchers, the leaves can look almost artificial. While the red net pattern is still very dense in the roundish lower pitchers with the oval peristome, this is strongly reduced in the impressive, cylindrical-funnel-shaped upper pitchers. The white uppers have a particularly noble, almost hand-drawn appearance due to their reduced, intensive red markings. Lower pitchers show a rather broad, yellow peristome, while the uppers only retain a narrow, yellow to white ring that adorns the pitchers. The species quickly goes into vining stage and climbs through a terrarium or greenhouse. It is particularly attractive to let the plant climb through accompanying vegetation.

AW-Nx_glX(boschXvei).1 Nepenthes glandulifera x (boschiana x veitchii)
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Another promising cross from the N. glandulifera hybrid series.
From Nepenthes boschiana x veitchii this hybrid will certainly inherit some of the pitcher size, peristome width and possibly peristome stripes, while it will get the characteristic pubescence from N. glandulifera. The peristome should become relatively dark, possibly with dark stripes, the pitcher body rather elongated with a red tinge.

AW-Nx_glX(veiXlow).2 Nepenthes glandulifera x (veitchii x lowii)
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Due to the novelty of this hybrid it is difficult to estimate what results this cross will really show. We can expect a hairy, nectary plant with dark, elongated pitcher and dark, striped peristome. It is hoped that the hybrid will take on the size of veitchii x lowii. Also the shape of the upper pitchers of veitchii x lowii with glandulifera influence could be interesting!

AW-Nx_glXveiH.1 Nepenthes glandulifera x veitchii (Highl.)
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø > 20 cm Here lovers of hairy leaves and tendrils get their money's worth! N. veitchii as well as N. glandulifera both show extremely hairy, almost furry leaf undersides and tendrils, this characteristic is also present in the hybrid. The pitchers show a relatively broad, posteriorly folded peristome, which may be yellow, orange, or red, with dark stripes, depending on the individual and light intensity. The pitcher body is funnel-shaped and velvety-haired. Both species stamens from intermediate altitudes, but especially N. veitchii is often very tolerant of lowland temperatures.

AW-N_ham.5 Nepenthes hamata (Gunung Lumut, Sulawesi)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 10-12 cm Short supply One of the most bizarre pitcher plant species around! While the lower pitchers belong to the beautiful, strongly-ribbed pitcher types, the upper pitchers are incomparable in the genus. The black-brown (sometimes reddish) spotted lowerspitchers show, similar to N. tentaculata, a ring of filiform appendages on the pitcher lid, an oval black peristome with extremely pronounced teeth and ribs. The upper pitchers, however, are green with red veins and the teeth curved outward to resemble the open maw of a monster. In nature N. hamata occurs in Sulawesi at 1400-2500 m.a.s.l. and belongs to the N. hamata group (N. muluensis, murudensis, glabrata, tentaculata). With the right conditions and sensible fertilization N. hamata grows relatively fast.

AW-Nx_hamXcamp.1 Nepenthes hamata x campanulata
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 8-15 cm Short supply A hybrid with an unexpectedly broad peristome. Although both parents show very narrow peristomes, this hybrid has a very distinct, fluted peristome. The funnel shape of N. campanulata asserts itself more or less depending on the individual, but is still clearly recognizable. The dominant pitcher coloration of N. hamata also easily asserts itself here against the green color of N. campanulata and is clearly evident in the hybrid. Since a lowland and highland species was crossed here, the hybrid is less sensitive to temperatures in both directions.

AW-Nx_hamXed.6 Nepenthes hamata x edwardsiana
Clone: 13 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply Definitely one of the best N. hamata hybrids. Often the teeth of toothed species can not develop their full expression in hybrids with non-toothed Nepenthes species, the resulting peristome teeth are more of an intermediate product. However, if two toothed species are crossed to form a hybrid, a resilient, fast-growing, strongly toothed hybrid is the result. N. hamata x edwardsiana easily rivals both pure parent species in beauty. A dark red, elongated pitcher body, similar to N. hamata but showing the globular base of N. edwardsiana and incredible teeth on the black peristome characterize this hybrid. With appropriate fertilization this hybrid grows extremely fast!

AW-N_inerm.12 Nepenthes inermis (Gunung Gadut, Sumatra)
Clone: 11 | Size: Vine Short supply This is my personal favourite species, with absolutely stunning and unique pitchers!!! Endemic to a number peaks in the Barisan Mountains of West Sumatra and Jambi, Nepenthes inermis grows (1500-2600m) either as an epiphyte in mossy forest or terrestrially amongst stunted montane scrub (>2000m). Despite being a true highland plant, N. inermis is a fairly quick and easy grower that rapidly vines from a young age. It is therefore highly recommended, both for specialists and newcomers with a basic understanding of how to cultivate highland nepenthes! Itís unique and beautiful upper pitchers really make it a ìmustî for any collection. Nepenthes inermis rarely produces lower pitchers; with the rosette stage being short lived. Lower pitchers are generally wingless and are mostly funnel shaped (infandibular), ballooning in the top third. They closely resemble the lower pitchers of N. dubia, but are distinctly constricted just below the almost horizontal peristome. Despite being very different to the upper pitchers, they are quite elegant and beautiful in their own right. This species is really known for its fantastic and completely unique upper pitchers! They in no way resemble the lower pitchers and have to be one of the best examples of pitcher dimorphism within the genus. These wide, infandibular pitchers (9cm) resemble bright electric green trumpets, almost completely lacking any peristome, a trait unique to only this species!!! This lack of any notable peristome is the origin of the name ëinermisí which is Latin for for "unarmed" .The pitcher mouth is round and generally horizontal, with a small, long pitcher lid doing little to keep out any rain. Fortunately, despite the fact that these pitchers often fill with water and are frequently tipped over due to the weight, extremely viscous pitcher fluid, as well as laterally appressed walls in the lower parts of the pitcher, keeps all pitcher contents within the pitcher, allowing water to drain and the pitchers to spring back to their original positions. Like other Sumatran species, this extremely viscous fluid may enable the upper pitchers to act as flypaper traps, as well as functioning as a lubricant to slide any trapped prey into the pitcher body. This fluid is so thick in fact that when poured, it can form a long stream several meters in length. Cultivation Guidelines: Light: Bright indirect or dappled light. Temperature: True highland conditions. Requires cool night time temperatures.
Growing medium: An open, mossy but well-draining mix. A mix of high quality sphagnum moss with horticultural-grade Perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pine bark works well. The proportion of Sphagnum in the mix should ideally be quite high. Extra notes on Cultivation: Appreciates high humidity levels.

AW-Nx_jambXdubM.1 Nepenthes jamban x dubia
Clone: 01 | Size: Vine Short supply Another hybrid combining two of the small, petite Sumatra species from the same species group. The close relationship is readily apparent from the pitcher and growth habit. The advantage to hybrids of these species is that the species known as "Sumatra brats" due to their sometimes fickle nature cause little trouble in hybrids. As a result of this crossing, a hybrid is produced whose lower pitchers look like an intermediate product of jamban and dubia. The pitcher colour is red with a flat, shiny peristome, the shape funnel-shaped with an implied toilet shape.

AW-Nx_konkXmoll.1 Nepenthes kongkandana x mollis
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm The first seedlings are already very colorful, showing red-green leaves red or orange pitchers with red dots and a striped peristome ! I am very excited about this hybrid.
The fact that the colour is already showing so strongly should mean that N. mollis has become strongly established with N. kongkandana x mollis. The combination of the fast-growing, robust N. kongkandana from the lowlands with the colourful, showy N. mollis from the highlands promises an interesting hybrid.

AW-N_low_mur.1 Nepenthes lowii (Gunung Murud, Borneo)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 3-5 cm Short supply The legendary Nepenthes lowii! Certainly one of the most famous Nepenthes species. With absolutely unique, specialized upper pitchers, the species is not only visually captivating.
The shape of these high pitchers is also the basis for an absolutely fascinating mutualism. Between the bristles on the pitcher lid, N. lowii secretes a sugary substance. This serves as food for the tree squirrels Tupaia montana and leads to subsequent defecation of the animals. This feces serves as a nitrogen source for the Nepenthes lowii. Lower pitchers of this species already show the bristles, but are not as extremely funnel-shaped as the uppers. The upper pitchers are highly variable and can bear diverse colors. Nepenthes lowii is found on Mt. Kinabalu, Trusmadi, Murud and Mulu in Borneo at 1650-2600 m.a.s.l.. N. lowii is a persistent grower under the right conditions, due to the slow growth it is recommended to start early with the species. More rare locality of this species

AW-Nx_lmXmira.1 Nepenthes lowii (Mulu, clone 7) x mira
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply Own hybrid. A crossing of our especially vigorous clone 7 of Nepenthes lowii (Mulu) and Nepenthes mira promises interesting and vigorous offspring. The young plants show typical deep red pitchers - a characteristic which is generally well inherited by Nepenthes lowii.

AW-N_macro.4 Nepenthes macrophylla (Gunung Trusmadi, Borneo)
Clone: 05 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm. Formerly known as Nepenthes edwardsiana ssp. macrophylla, but in species status since 1997. Beautiful species, which belongs to the strongly ribbed Nepenthes species. Unique is the long, unusually raised peristome of this species, which contrasts with the light inside of the pitcher. The cup-shaped pitchers are mostly red or orange, the peristome often red, more rarely orange. The natural hybrid N. x trusmadiensis, which consists of N. lowii and N. macrophylla, is particularly well known. "Macrophylla" refers to the large leaves of this species. It is found sympatric with N. lowii at 2200-2640 m.a.s.l. on Mt. Trusmadi. Unique, mostly vigorous species with impressive peristome!
1
AW-N_mik.1 Nepenthes mikei
Clone: 02 | Size: Ø 4-6 cm Short supply Arguable one of the most dainty and beautiful of the small Nepenthes species, Nepenthes mikei is an amazing deminutive highland species endemic to the Indonesian island of Sumatra, where it is recorded as being from only two locations: Mount Pangulubao in North Sumatra and Mount Bandahara in Aceh. Other locations are undisclosed for conservation purposes. They grow exclusively terrestrially in lower and upper montane mossy forest, as well as amongst stunted summit scrub (1100-2800m), often in open and exposed sites. Almost everything about this species is small and delicate, from the leaves, to the stems and of course the pitchers. Small does not mean they can’t make a bold statement however! Lower pitchers (max 12cm) are slightly rounded near the base, but are mostly cylindrical, opening up in a slight funnel towards the pitcher opening. What really makes the pitchers stand out however is their exquisite coloration and detail. Their tiny pitchers are so darkly coloured that they appear black, and contrast so strongly with their strikingly bright yellow-green speckling , the fully pale green interior (occasionally with eyespots) and the very thin bright yellow-green peristome that rings the pitcher opening. They really are a sight to behold. In lower pitchers, dark frilled wings run down the front of the pitcher body, with the inward facing side of each frill often being the same shocking green as the flecks and peristome. This species rapidly transitions from a rosette to a climbing vine up to 7m in length. Upper pitchers are similar (8cm), though smaller than the lower pitchers, and wings are reduced to ribs running down the front of each pitcher. They are more delicate and the peristome can take on a reddish tint. In bright light the red stems and tendrils can darken to a deep purple. This whole plant can really put on a display, especially when healthy vines are covered in dozens and dozens of striking little, elegant pitchers Cultivation Guidelines: Light: Bright indirect or dappled light. Often grows in open sites where it is exposed to direct sunlight. Seems tolerant of high light levels provided temperatures remain cool. Temperature: True highland conditions. Requires cool night time temperatures. Growing medium: An open, mossy but well-draining mix. A mix of high quality sphagnum moss with horticultural-grade perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pine bark works well. The proportion of Sphagnum in the mix should ideally be quite high. Extra notes on Cultivation: Appreciates high humidity levels.

AW-N_mul.1 Nepenthes muluensis (Gunung Mulu, Borneo)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 10-12 cm Short supply Extremely pretty, contrasting species from Borneo. The lower pitchers are black coloured with light spots and stripes on the pitcher and peristome. The shape is tubular with a widened base and prominent wing bars, with extremely long fringes. The leaves lance-shaped with a red midrib and red or dark green in color. The upper pitchers are also black with more light spots and usually white peristome with white lid. Extremely nice contrast! The wings on the uppers are reduced. The name "Muluensis" describes the origin of the type plant, but the species has been found on other mountains in Sarawak. There it occurs at 1700-2400 m.a.s.l..

AW-n_nig_K.1 Nepenthes nigra (Gunung Katopasa)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply A species long desired by many hobbyists in the hobby. Nepenthes nigra was found and described in Sulawesi in 2011. The pitchers look very similar to a toothless N. hamata, a close relationship with this species exists. The name "nigra" stands for "black" and refers to the largely black coloration of the pitchers. The lower pitchers are black with light green spots, black peristome, and dark pitcher interior, the upper pitchers are lighter overall and have an almost rectangular cross-section. Pretty, contrasting highland species, with an altitudinal range of 1500-2700 m.a.s.l..

AW-N_pito_SDL.1 Nepenthes pitopangii ("Ivory Colored Form")
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply Extremely rare species, documented in 2006 from only one known plant and described in 2009. In 2011 a new population with about twelve individuals was found. It is a great luck to be able to propagate this species in vitro to offer it here and to spare the fragile wild populations. The plants offered have deep red lower pitchers, very similar in shape to N. glabrata lowers. The upper pitchers are strongly funnel-shaped and ivory-colored with a red peristome and pitcher lid. The species occurs at 1400-2000 m.a.s.l..
Despite the strong threat in nature, the plants offered here can be acquired without regret, as they have been cloned many times by in vitro micropropagation, thus relieving the small wild population.

AW-Nx_platyXbosch.1 Nepenthes platychila x boschiana
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø > 30 cm Short supply Nepenthes platychila x boschiana is very popular. The elongated lower pitchers become gigantic and show a dark red-purple, broad and shiny peristome. Depending on the light intensity, the peristome stripes of N. platychila can show through more or less. The large tall pitchers then show wide, funnel-shaped, green pitchers with an intensely red-green striped peristome, which is flat and broad thanks to N. platychila. You practically get an oversized Nepenthes platychila with unique lower pitchers!

AW-Nx_platyXmoll.1 Nepenthes platychila x mollis
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm The first taller grown plants show a very promising hybrid here.
The contrasting stripes of both species were also well preserved in the hybrid and the base cans already show the appearance of Nepenthes platychila base cans with the raised peristome of N. mollis. The tall cans are likely to produce the extremely wide, collar-like peristome of Nepenthes platychila, as this often becomes strongly prominent in Nepenthes platychila hybrids.

AW-N_raff_sm.2 Nepenthes rafflesiana (Borneo)
Size: Ø 8-10 cm A mostly underestimated, highly variable species that covers a wide distribution in nature. From black to white pitchers, virtually all intermediate forms are represented. The lower pitchers are cup-shaped with a round peristome showing characteristic teeth under the pitcher lid. The wings are broad and toothed. The upper pitchers are very funnel-shaped and, like N. sumatrana, show a characteristic elevation in the peristome. This form of Nepenthes rafflesiana has very pale, almost white, sparsely spotted pitchers with a reddish peristome. Extremely interesting species for any lowland setup.

AW-N_rhomb_J.2 Nepenthes rhombicaulis (Gunung Pangulubao)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 8-15 cm Short supply Pretty species with unusual ecology, endemic to Sumatra. Unlike many other Nepenthes species, Nepenthes rhombicaulis occurs underground in the forest and often pitchers or parts of the plants are partially to completely covered by detritus and moss. Pitchers that grow buried are reported to grow significantly larger than free-standing pitchers. Bruce Salmon hypothesized that this species thus specialized in capturing subterranean insects. Under regular highland conditions with night temperature drop, the species is unproblematic to keep, especially the low light requirement.
The pitchers are often cup-shaped with an oval, broad peristome and usually in shades of green, brown or red

AW-N_ten_GE.1 Nepenthes tenuis (West Sumatra)
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 5-8 cm Short supply Nepenthes tenuis is a remarkable, diminutive species, which may produce some of the smallest pitchers after N. argentii. It is endemic to a single known location along the Tjampo River in West Sumatra. It grows in mossy and sub-montane forest on sandstone ledges at relatively low altitudes (100-1200m) , making it more of an ‘intermediate’ plant. It is an easy and hardy plant that grows rapidly under the right conditions. Lower pitchers are rarely seen as N. tenuis rapidly transitions into uppers. The lowers are incredibly squat, round and tubby. Upper pitchers are also incredibly small (2.5-4.5cm) and are widely funnel shaped (infundibular) with a slight constriction below the rounded and almost horizontal opening. The pitcher mouth is ringed with a relatively wide and flattened peristome much like the seat of a tiny colourful toilet bowl. Both upper and lower pitchers lack any wings, instead having two colourful ridges running down the pitcher bodies. The pitchers are a creamy yellow-green, with varying but often heavy amounts of red to maroon-brown blotches, which tend to increase towards the upper parts of the pitcher body. As such pitchers can appear more red than green and often have a rosy hue to them. The peristome varies from yellow to a maroon-brown colour. These striking little toilet-shaped pitchers in many ways resemble a more colourful and rotund version of N. dubia. While small they are one of the most underrated species in my opinion. Cultivation Guidelines. Light: Bright indirect or dappled light. Temperature: More ‘intermediate’ and tolerant of warmer temperatures than other highlanders. Cool nights are still recommended. Growing medium: An open, mossy but well-draining mix. A mix of high quality sphagnum moss with horticultural-grade perlite, a bit of good quality peat-moss and pine bark works well. The proportion of Sphagnum in the mix should ideally be quite high. Extra notes on Cultivation: Appreciates high humidity levels.

AW-Nx_truncXhamig.2 Nepenthes truncata x hamiguitanensis
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Small batch release Short supply Nepenthes truncata x hamiguitanensis promises to be a very interesting new cross. I see great potential with this new hybrid. With these parents nothing can really go wrong! The leaves show a clear influence from Nepenthes truncata and the bulbous pitchers are influenced by Nepenthes hamiguitanensis.

AW-Nx_truncXkhas.1 Nepenthes truncata x khasiana
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 8-15 cm Short supply Nepenthes khasiana is the only pitcher plant endemic to India. The species has proved to be a suitable hybrid partner in the past, as it strongly inherits its pattern of markings and vigour to its hybrids. Thus it is also one of the crossing partners of the well-known Nepenthes x "Gaya". Nepenthes truncata on the other hand is mostly known for large pitchers in its hybrids. Nepenthes truncata x khasiana produces large pitchers, which can have the N. khasiana pattern, but is above all very uncomplicated and vigorous, so also suitable for windowsills

AW-Nx_truncXram.3 Nepenthes truncata x ramispina
Clone: 17/11 | Size: Ø 8-10 cm Short supply Nepenthes truncata x ramispina combines as a cross the oversize pitchers of Nepenthes truncata and the black colour of Nepenthes ramispina. The result is very large, dark purple to black lower pitchers that share many similarities with an enlarged N. ramispina but have a spotted pitcher interior. The upper pitchers of the cross are darker than a pure N. ramispina and have green color tints, but are primarily dark purple. The cross has proven to be very robust and can be cultivated on the windowsill without problems if the light requirements of Nepenthes are satisfied.

AW-Nx_vXbosch.1 Nepenthes veitchii x boschiana
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Short supply A spectacular hybrid from promising parents. The hybrid forms elongated orange-yellow pitchers, which are spotted red throughout the body. The wing bars are fully formed and toothed. The peristome can vary from unicoloured to slightly striped. But there are also various specimens with a color gradient from red to yellow towards the inside of the peristome

AW-Nx_vXmap.1 Nepenthes ventricosa x mapuluensis
Clone: 01 | Size: Ø 10-15 cm The commercial availability of Nepenthes mapuluensis was an exciting event in the hobby in 2021, although the species had been in cultivation for some time. Nepenthes mapuluensis is one of the most impressive lowland species. Luckily the larger specimens of this hybrid show that they have inherited many characteristics from mapuluensis. The markings with dark red spots and the dark red, jagged peristome, which is at a steep angle to the pitcher axis are features that have become established in this hybrid. In combination with the robust N. ventricosa you get a plant that is an interesting alternative or extension to the care of Nepenthes mapuluensis, both in price and in care.

AW-Nx_ventXundu.1 Nepenthes ventricosa x undulatifolia
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 10-15 cm Short supply New hybrid with the Nepenthes undulatifolia described in 2011. This hybrid easily shows the undulating (wavy), namesake leaves of N. undulatifolia. The pitchers are ovate, bulbous, and spotted with a red ground color. The robustness of N. ventricosa makes the hybrid faster and more robust than the already fast-growing pure N. undulatifolia. The hybrid forms many pitchers that are quite large compared to the plant. An extremely rewarding plant for beginners and advanced growers.

AW-Nx_vogXtlg.1 Nepenthes vogelii x talangensis
Clone: Individual clone from seeds - individual seedling (ISC) | Size: Ø 15-20 cm Small batch release short supply Nepenthes vogelii x talangensis is a recent hybrid of two smaller but elegant upland species. Unfortunately, it is not yet clear how much the funnel shape of the Nepenthes vogelii parent will show in the hybrid's upper pitchers. The lower pitchers are very similar to Nepenthes talangensis with a bulbous pitcher body and a light or dark striped peristome depending on the individual. The coloration and patterning of the pitcher itself is identical to that of Nepenthes vogelii. A simple, graceful hybrid, which will possibly show its full potential in the high pitchers.
