Nepenthes x hookeriana - curly leaves


The Nepenthes x hookeriana is a lowland natural hybrid between N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana.

This plant was started from seed that originated from Nakhon Nayok Province of Thailand, harvested 8-17-10.

Since it is still a young plant the traps should develop more of a squat shape as it matures. The peristome should widen more too.

The leaves on this Hooker are curly, a natural trait seen on some plants in the wild.

This young Hooker hsa been growing indoors on a shelf 14 inches below 1, T8, 32 watt florescent light.

The surrounding humidity has been about 65% and the temp around 72F to 80F. It is growing in long fiber sphagnum moss and watered using rain water from the bottom via the tray method.

Hookers don't do well with direct sunlight but do better in indirect lighting and do well under florescent lights. There are a variety of potting mixes that you can find online. The Hooker is doing fine in just long fiber sphagnum moss for now.

SHIPPING: The plant will be shipped bare root, wrapped in sphagnum moss. I do my best to make sure the roots are disturbed as little as possible . This is a very hardy plant, easy to grow under lowland conditions and should pick up right where it left off.

US Only: I ship only to the US using priority mail, 2-3 business days. I will refund you if you are over charged for shipping.
