Nepenthes rowanae is a large pitcher plant, reaching up to 100cm (40") tall! Plants form a tall central stem, and are surrounded by multiple, large pitchers. Pitchers can each reach more than 20cm (8") long, and have a 5cm opening at the throat. Plants are native to Australia.

Type: Perennial

Hardiness zones: 9-11 planted outdoors, or grown indoors.

Location: Sun

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: These seeds germinate best on dampened sphagnum moss. Soak the moss for 1 hour, then gently squeeze out excess water, but allow some moisture to remain (not dripping). Place the moss in a container, and sprinkle the seeds on top. Cover the container with plastic to retain moisture. Place the container in very bright light, and in a very warm location, ideally 32C, 90F. Once the small plants begin to grow, slowly open the plastic a little each day. Use rain water or bottled water (use a spritz bottle while plants are small) to regularly water plants, but do not leave them standing on water. Once plants are large enough to transplant, a growing mix consisting of equal parts peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and sphagnum moss (long fibre type) can be used. Seeds germinate anywhere from 1 month, to 12 months. Patience is needed, but they are worth the effort for this unique plant!
