This is the true species! This particular cultivar of Nepenthes burkei originates from Mount Halcon, on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. They have a nice undulating 'waist' shape to their pitchers, similar to the trait that so many people enjoy about the closely related (but typically uniformly-colored) Nepenthes ventricosa. However, this species also has beautiful red speckling throughout the pitcher, making them much nicer in our opinion...and just as easy to grow! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers. Note: for those who want to keep track of Borneo Exotics' item codes, this is BE-3254.
