Nepenthes platychila is a unique species from the Hose Mountains in Sarawak, Borneo. Like N. eymae and N. vogelii, its upper pitchers are dramatically different from its lower pitchers and display a wide flattened peristome.
This species is rare in cultivation and is best classified as an intermediate, growing at between 900 and 1400m elevation. While I grow it successfully in my highland greenhouse, it definitely prefers the warmer time of year. For more cultivation advice, see my Nepenthes Growing Guide.
These are very young seed-grown individuals - you can see the magnificent mother plant in the first photo. Sale plants are around 8-10cm in diameter and will be sent potted. Very few available - don’t miss out! See delivery information.
