Nepenthes edwardsiana Potted
Nepenthes edwardsiana is among the most magnificent and sought-after of all Nepenthes species. It probably needs no introduction, but its famous, deeply ridged peristome makes it instantly recognizable and awe-inspiring! Produced with horticulturally produced seeds, this is a single clone exclusive from the California Carnivores tissue culture lab.
This is an ultra highland species which has specific requirements but many people have reported it to be more forgiving than villosa, rajah or lowii.
