An open pollinated Nepenthes unique to this nursery. The mother is Nepenthes 'Song of Melancholy' a classic hybrid created by Hawaiian nurseryman Sam Estes. It is very hardy and does very well at room temperature with little additional need for heating and cooling. It has large attractive peristomes (lips) and pitchers reach up to a one foot in length when fully grown. This one is both exceedingly beautiful, hardy, and vigorous making it my all time favorite! Likely fathers include Nepenthes spathulata x gynmomphora and Nepenthes talangensis.
