Nepenthes naga, is a recently described large, carnivorous tropical pitcher plant with small fang on the underside of the hood. The traps are large with a wide pronounced red peristome. These are very pretty. N. naga grows naturally only in a small population in the Barisan Mountains of N. Sumatra. 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.

"Naga" is an Indonesian word for "dragon" and refers to its distinctive appendage and pitcher size. Folklore tells of dragons inhabiting the same habitat in the past.

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.
