Nepenthes alata is a tropical pitcher plant native 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.
Light: Nepenthes alata will do best with morning direct sun and bright indirect light in the afternoon.
Water: Never allow your Nepenthes alata to dry out completely. Water when the top 1-2” are dry. It’s important to make sure the pitchers of your Nepenthes alata are always about half full of water. If they are allowed to go dry they will shrivel and eventually drop. These plants will also benefit from some added humidity.
