A new grex of LVB x candy Dreams was created between us and our friend Brian Howey. The female on this cross has a flared, ruffled peristome! Should be hot!

This plant prefers intermediate conditions. It can be kept between 78-84F in the day and would benefit from nights in the '60s. Nepenthes can acclimate to lower humidity levels, although the best results will be seen with a relative humidity range between 75-80%. Bright, indirect light and pure water.
Nepenthes or tropical pitcher plants are primarily native to Southeast Asia. There are roughly 180 species, with many recently discovered in the 20th century. They grow anywhere from hot, sticky jungles to chill mountain tops high above the clouds. Though Nepenthes are thought of as difficult to grow, this is far from the truth. Most plants have adapted to cultivation quite well and the hobby is growing quickly. In fact, most tropical pitcher plant species and hybrids will thrive between 60-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
