Nepenthes mira

Nepenthes mira is a beautiful plant from the island of Palawan in the Philippines. It’s somewhat similar to the famous N. rajah in appearance and produces huge leaves with large, squat pitchers. The reddish-orange colouration on adult plants is particularly attractive.

I’ve found N. mira to be an adaptable grower suited to typical highland conditions. For more cultivation advice, see my Nepenthes Growing Guide.

The first two photos show the exact plant you’ll receive, which is about 12cm in diameter and will be sent potted. The third and fourth photos show the plant from which the cutting was taken - this plant originated from Andreas Wistuba. Postage costs £6 via first class signed-for delivery in the UK, and is free for orders over £60.
