Asian Pitchers plant hybrids: Borneo Exotics Hybrid BE-3755
Highland: Hybrid of highland and intermediate
Nepenthes hamata x robcantleyi , is a new hybrid from Borneo Exotics. Introduced in 2017. Both hamata & robcantleyi are iconic species and make great hybrids. The inverse cross was absolutely spectacular and this seem to be just a little bit better in coloration and teeth!
Most Nepenthes robcantleyi hybrids do attain a great size and grow well in variety of conditions. I grow mine on sunny window that receives morning sun daily.
Nepenthes hamata x robcantleyi Care Notes:
Very easy to care for and and robust grower. Both species can be temperamental, but I’ve found most individuals of this cross to grow well as intermediates w/o added humidity.
The parent species are found on completely different islands so this is an interesting genetic mix.
Because of the pedigree of both parents and spectacular prices are usally high for a hybrid. I expect this will decrease over time as more become available from tissue culture.
Please comment below if you have any experience w/ growing this hybrid.
