Nepenthes Diatas is a remarkable tropical pitcher plant with distinctive teeth along the edges of its opening. It comes from the Sumatran Highlands and has large orange to deep red, almost purple pitchers when mature. They are very beautiful, often growing in a compact rosette. It is quite good at catching large insects, such as: stink bugs, wasps and yellow jackets. It is a great house plant in air conditioning.
Light: The Nepenthes Diatas prefer bright, filtered sun, with a preference toward receiving some direct light in order to thrive. We recommend placing them in a hot and sunny west-facing window or adding a grow light. These plants will not thrive in low light conditions.
Water: These plants love water, and prefer their soil to be damp at all times. Check daily, and add water if the soil is no longer damp.
Humidity: These tropical, bog-loving carnivores prefer a humid environment. We suggest running a humidifier or misting regularly if the air in your space is particularly dry.
Non-toxic to people and pets.
