A lovely little species, N. gymnamphora comes from the jungle floors of Sumatra. It tends to produce multiple lower growth points, rather than vine, so upper pitchers are almost never seen. Pitchers are small and red with lots of maroon spots and they tend to bury themselves in the duff. They can probably do with a little less light than most Nepenthes. Although horticultural specimens of gymnamphora, pectinata, and xiphioides look unique enough to distinguish easily, plants in the wild vary greatly and interbreed. Therefor these three species may soon me lumped into gymnamphora. These are cuttings from a single clone.
