Nepenthes x Hookeriana pitcher

This is the biggest pitcher I’ve had on my Nepenthes x Hookeriana so far. I’ve had this plant for a couple of years now and it loves staying in this same spot in my hobby room, out of direct sunlight. The room is constantly warm and slightly humid because I mist the plants in this room every day. The perfect environment for carnivorous plants!

The plant itself is the slowest growing carnivorous plant I’ve had. It grows very large leaves unlike my Nepenthes Ventrata, but it only puts out one leaf every month or so. And the pitchers form even more slowly. This pitcher should grow slightly larger over the coming weeks. The “lid” only just popped open yesterday. Now it’s ready to feast on some flies!
