Nepenthes hirsuta

Carnivorous plants image Nepenthes hirsuta 13 to 16 cm of diameter

Nepenthes hirsuta is native to Borneo, where it is endemic. The name comes from its pilosity - brown hairs cover the back of the leaves and even on the inflorescence ! The nice light green pitchers have a few red blotches inside. They help the plant in attracting insects. Lowland species.

Conseils spécifiques pour cette espèce


Température From 20 to 35°C all year long.


Eau Only rain, demineralized or osmosed water. A mineralized (and especially calcareous) water may be lethal in the long term. Never let water stand in the tray because the roots may rot.


Engrais Twice a month, you can use a 1/4 diluted orchids fertilizer.


Luminosité No direct sun but about 50% of its luminosity. Artificial light can be very beneficial or even necessary.


Substrat Use the Nepenthes mix or do it by yourself using sphagnum moss, bark, coconut fibre and sphagnum peat moss.

About the Service Plus

(1) Unless otherwise stated, the plants are shipped bare root, wrapped in moist sphagnum moss. Prepare everything you need to repot them upon arrival. Each Tillandsia and Neoregelia is wrapped in a dry padded box.

(2) With the Service Plus (when available), the plants are shipped in their original pot, in a protective box, with a "Karnivores" label on which you can write the name of the plant. There's no need to repot them upon arrival, and acclimatization is much faster and easier.
