Nepenthes rafflesiana, is a medium sized, carnivorous tropical pitcher plant with gorgeous, red speckled pitchers. The speckling is dense and a nice deep red. These are very pretty. Traps in this clone have a nice red tint, and wide, prominent wings. Basal traps are urn shaped and can get up to 4+" in length. It is heat tolerant and does well in a window. It is quite good at catching large insects, such as: stink bugs, wasps and yellow jackets.  N. rafflesiana grows naturally on the forest edge among ferns. 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.
