Nepenthes ephippiata is another strange species from Borneo. Closely related to N. lowii, it shares the spiky lid hairs and production of rodent-attracting exudate from the lid underside, as well as a very woody texture. N. ephippiata produces pitchers with a shape that some people compare to a slipper or shoe, and at maturity the lid can be quite enormous. Slow-growing but sturdy, this is one of the most desirable species in the genus.
This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.
