Nepenthes lingulata, has long dark elegant pitchers with dramatic spreading peristomes. It has a distinctive spur-like "tongue" under the hood, much like Nepenthes bicalcarata. Pitchers appear furry because of numerous silver hairs. It is a rare plant in cultivation. It grows epiphytical in mossy mountain forests. In cultivation is does well in moderately bright indirect light. Reduce watering in winter. It is a great house plant, that can be grown outdoors in the warm weather. It is excellent in the terrarium, and shaded greenhouse. It can grow quite large.

Seed count is approximate, but reliable. Growing carnivorous plants from seeds is best suited for the experienced and patient grower. See our webpage on Growing CPs from Seeds.

Note: Recently, one of our local carnivorous plant society’s members died and left behind a carnivorous plant collection including these seeds. I volunteered to help his widow take care of this collection and move the materials on to benefit the educational and conservation efforts of our local CP society.
