The time has finally come! No cross in our breeding program has generated more interest and excitement than this one, and we're finally making them available.
Nepenthes Titanic Empire is the combination of 2 truly remarkable parents. The female parent N. Titan is the largest, most vigorous N. truncata that we are aware of cultivation. She produces pitcher that can reach over 20", and makes flower stalks that top 7'! Nepenthes Empire is a fabulous specimen of one of the most coveted species. N. edwardsiana is notorious for producing perhaps the most radically shaped peristomes in the genus. They appear to be lined with enormous, razor-sharp plates. The pitchers are huge, long, and deep crimson.
While these offspring are still young, they aren't waiting to declare that they have inherited the very best from both of their parents. They have fantastic, waxy, truncated leaves, and a pitcher-to-leaf ratio that we have never observed before. More importantly, the pitchers have an arresting red coloration, and the beginnings of an absolutely vicious peristome.
The pictures are of the exact plant for sale. We consider this to be one of our most outstanding small-sized plants. It appears to hold more simultaneous pitchers than any of our other plants at this size. The pitchers are squat, tubby, and have great color.
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.
