Tropical pitcher plants native to Madagascar, Southeast Asia, or Australia, Nepenthes has pitcher-like pitfall traps. The lids of the pitcher secrete nectar to attract insects, which become unable to escape from the trap because of its downward-pointing hairs and slick sides. The pitcher plant relies on this carnivory behaviour to obtain nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus to compensate for poor soil conditions.
Sunlight: Place your Nepenthes Spp. under bright and indirect sunlight. Store in lower light if leaves yellow or turn brown. We recommend hanging it on a balcony with some shade.
Water: Allow the top two inches of the soil to dry up inbetween watering the plant. Water moderately to keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Try to use distilled water or rainwater as Nepenthes is sensitive to chemicals present in tap water.
Fertiliser: Generally do not need to be fertilised, but light misting of dilute liquid epiphyte fertiliser is allowed.
