This hybrid combines two fantastic features into one plant! The Nepenthes aristolochioides parent is known for having some of the most strangely shaped pitchers, with an oval shape and a reduced pitcher opening that is located on the front surface of the pitcher (rather than on top as with other species). The Nepenthes robcantleyi parent is Borneo Exotics' 'King of Spades' clone, and is known for its HUGE wide peristome and near-black coloration. These should be NEAT as they get larger! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers. For those who are keeping records, this is Borneo Exotics' item BE-3695.
