Nepenthes Alata

999.00

Nepenthes alata is a tropical pitcher plant endemic to the Philippines. Like all pitcher plants, it is carnivorous and uses its nectar to attract insects that drown in the pitcher and are digested by the plant. It is highly polymorphic, and its taxonomy continues to be subject to revisions.

One of the most popular carnivorous species in cultivation, Tropical Pitcher Plant ?Alata? is known for its large, red pitchers that grow off the tips of the leaves and attract insects and people alike. The pitchers are filled with secretions that attract, and will also digest, insects that land on the slippery little covers and fall into the pitchers. Make sure the pitchers always have a little fluid in the bottom. If the plant has been recently moved so the natural secretions drain out, fill each pitcher with about 1? of distilled water. Grow in partial sun to bright shade with good humidity and air ventilation. ?Alata? is being sold in a 6? hanging basket with pitchers fully developed.
