Nepenthes aristolochioides x hamata was first introduced by Borneo Exotics in March 2018. This item is exclusive in that Borneo Exotics does not have it in microprop. Therefore, it’s only available in extremely limited supply and will be released only occasionally. The male parent is the rare red hairy form of N. hamata. This is one of those hybrids that everyone at CalCarn is super excited about; we love the tubby shape of aristolochioides and the famed, fanged peristome of hamata is one of our all time favorites! These are from cuttings.
