Nepenthes aristolochioides



6500F- 7200F A.S.L. Highland

Growing temperature:

A good temperature to growing the plant at is 75F in the day and 50F at night.

Very bright light.  I keep mine in defused but very bright light for at least 10 hours a day.

I would use a soil base of about 70% to 80% of sphagnum moss with a little orchid bark thrown in for good measures.

Pitcher size:
this plant has medium to small pitchers (about 4 inches) but the is easily made up for by the very unique looking pitchers.  The biggest my plants pitchers have gotten is just over 3 inches.


All Nepenthes love high humidity but that dose not necessarily mean some can not be acclimated to a lesser humid environment given a little time.  For best growth keep the humidity above 75% higher is better as long as the light is keep high (If one has 100% humidity all the time and the light is very low it could very quickly rot the  plant)


It is best to use a water with a very low ppm (Parts Per Million) of dissolved solids anything below 70 ppm would be fine to use on most CPs. Never let the plant dry out water every few days for best growth.  Most Nepenthes will not tolerate standing in water (they may grow but will defiantly not look there best)!
