Nepenthes macrophylla

Nepenthes macrophylla is a truly spectacular and very rare highland species native to Borneo. It has a vicious toothy peristome, tough woody pitchers, and distinctively large, thick leaves. The third photo shows a mature specimen in the wild, photographed by my fellow CP blogger François Mey.

While N. macrophylla can be slow growing, the species can get extremely large as it matures. It requires highland conditions to thrive, and is very seldom found in cultivation. I recommend this plant for experienced growers only. I have 2 small plants available, each about 8-10cm diameter, purchased from Christian Klein - don’t miss out.

These plants will be sent potted. The first two photos show the plants which are for sale. Postage costs £6 via first class signed-for delivery in the UK, and is free for orders over £60.
