N. nov. spec. Sumatra
purchase date: 5 / 05
arrived as a size 2
plant origin: Nepenthes Nursery
photo taken:  5 / 05

Nepenthes nov. spec. Sumatra is a newly undescribed species from Sumatra. This is a new offering from the Nepenthes Nursery in Germany. They have a photo of the adult plant on their website. The upper pitcher looks kind of like an upper pitcher of N. inermis to some degree. They have no photos of the lower pitchers. I bought the plant because it was a new offering as with other plants I buy. It is fresh from tissue culture I believe. I don't think it is seed grown because the Nepenthes Nursery does a lot of tissue culturing. The plants are small and very lime green looking. The leaves are not waxy like other greenhouse hardened plants this size. I potted them up and put them outdoors and they're doing alright. It will be some time before I get any decent sized pitchers to photograph. Hopefully this plant will grow similar and as easy as the N. dubia that was offered by the Nepenthes Nursery when it first released their clone. I posted this photo so one can see what to expect when they purchase this plant initially.
