A miniature toilet bowl pitcher that thrives in intermediate conditions!
So TINY! January 2021
What a wonderfully small Nepenthes! January 2021
I received my rooted cutting from case869 in January 2021. The seller originally received their mother plant from Predatory Plants, whose origin has long since been forgotten. This is a male plant that has been designated "Twinkle" by their in-house breeding program.
I have always wanted a true toilet bowl shaped pitcher plant! After my dismal failure with Nepenthes jamban, I was hesitant to try another. After doing some research, I found Nepenthes tenuis to be another small toilet bowl shaped pitcher plant tolerant of a wide range of temperatures. Some have even reported it surviving in ultra-lowland conditions! Nepenthes tenuis was originally collected at 1000m above sea level, which places it right at the lowland/highland boundary. I decided to take a risk and try this species out!
