Nepenthes jamban Potted
Nepenthes jamban is a spectacular species that comes from North Sumatra. Its name comes from the Indonesian word for 'toilet,' which alludes to its shape. The upper pitchers can be up to 5" tall with a perfectly circular mouth and a lightly ridged flat peristome, often bright red. The gaping pitcher abruptly narrows to the tendril, making it look a bit like a toilet. We have a very limited inventory of these plants. This is a single clone exclusive from the California Carnivores tissue culture lab.
