Nepenthes boschiana x klossi is an exciting new hybrid from Borneo Exotics! Nepenthes boschiana is well known for its mottled pitchers with gorgeous dark red, almost black peristomes. It’s also easy to grow under variable conditions and very vigorous. BE has combined this with the rare, beautiful and highly desirable, but less easy to grow, Nepenthes klossi. Nepenthes klossi has uniquely shaped pitchers that look like large, slender bird houses with the peristome opening slightly lower down on the side of the pitcher.
What a fun hybrid from the tissue culture lab at BE! From assorted clones BE-4530.
