What is our source for this Nepenthes?
Diflora began the micropropagation of Nepenthes diatas by sterile flask. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production.
How we grow it?
Nepenthes diatas grows indoors all year. It is under LED lights at 20°C.
What is Its main strategy to catch prey?
To attract prey Nepenthes diatas releases sweet substances on the edge of the pitcher. This essence attracts insects and they fall on the inside of the trap. Inside of it there is an acid liquid full of digestive enzymes. Escape from the pitcher is almost impossible. The inside has smooth walls and some species have hairs facing down that stop preys.
