This species is native to Borneo, Malaysia, and Sumatra. Its name refers to the white band of trichomes around the pitcher brim. This is a distinct characteristic of the species and termites find it irresistible! Nepenthes albomarginata is very easy to grow under typical warm temperatures.
This plant prefers lowland conditions. It should be kept between 84-90F, with nights no lower than 65F. Nepenthes can acclimate to lower humidity levels, although the best results will be seen with a relative humidity of around 80%. Bright, indirect light and pure water.
Nepenthes 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. Tho Nepenthes were once thought to be 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 indoors between 60 and85 degrees Fahrenheit.
