Nepenthes rajah x robcantleyi Potted
First introduced July 2020. It has taken decades of dedicated work to produce this dream hybrid. The female parent is a Nepenthes rajah, which is one of the four clones donated in-vitro from the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in the 1990s. The male parent is the giant black Nepenthes robcantleyi, with the cultivar name ‘King of Spades'. We only have a few available. This is a tissue culture plant.
