Nepenthes rhombicaulis is endemic to Sumatra. It grows terrestrially in shady montane forests at altitudes between 1600–2000 meters. It grows well as an intermediate and is pretty easy to grow in cultivation. This Nepenthes rhombicaulis is a seed grown specimen from Christian Klein.
This plant prefers highland/ intermediate conditions. It should be kept between 73-83F in the day with 55-63F nights. Nepenthes can acclimate to lower humidity levels, although the best results will be seen with a relative humidity 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 plants species and hybrids will thrive indoors between 60 and85 degrees Fahrenheit.
