Description

Nepenthes macfarlanei is a carnivorous plant endemic to Peninsular Malaysia, preferring to grow in mountainous regions. This tropical pitcher plant is known for its attractive, red-speckled pitchers, which can grow up to 25 cm tall. The plant thrives best in an environment with high humidity levels of 80-90% and a temperature range between 21 and 24 °C. It requires bright, but diffuse light. For daylight cultivation, it should be partially shaded and thus protected from direct sunlight. The ideal substrate consists of a mix of peat moss, sand, and perlite, and the plant should be watered with reverse osmosis or rainwater.

Nepenthes macfarlanei is particularly well-suited for terrarium cultivation, as the controlled environment provides optimal conditions. The plant can be kept in special micro-terrarium propagation containers, which are easy to clean and maintain. The decorative pitchers produced by the plant are not only functional for insect hunting but also an aesthetic highlight. Nepenthes macfarlanei blooms inconspicuously, but the red speckles on the pitchers give it a unique charm that enhances any terrarium.
