Nepenthes Alata, a carnivore plant ... tanned!

"Sister" of the Bloody Mary, this Nepenthes alata presents a particularly dark color of the ascidia. It is actually a hybrid recently obtained, with particularly interesting purple hues. Compared to the Nepenthes Bloody Mary, the ascidians are supported by vines longer and more distant from each other. As with all carnivores, this Nepenthes Alata can contain a large amount of liquid. In nature it grows in large rainforests and even reaches 15 meters in height!
The winged Nepenthes are, as it is easy to guess, carnivorous plants that love water: their watering must be abundant and carried out from above (just like it was a rain of the forests in which it usually lives), even better if with rain water or distilled. The water must also finish inside the ascidia and fill them for about 1/3. Moisture is very important: they suffer very much in extremely dry or ventilated environments. They easily thrive in spaces with lots of light, especially when facing the north: it is not advisable to expose them to direct sunlight. The ideal temperatures are between 16 and 25 ° C and prefers a slightly acid soil with a low percentage of peat, with instead good presence of pine bark, perlite and sphagnum peat.
