Nepenthes boschiana is very rare in cultivation and is known only from the summits of a small number of mountains in South Kalimantan.

It is a vigorous grower, the plant climbing strongly over ridge top vegetation. Pitchers attain 20 cm in height, and are a rich mottled brown with a yellow background.. It most closely resembles N faizaliana, which is restricted to the Mulu region of Sarawak, and probably this species closest relative.


ELEVATION: 900-1880 meters

Reports from growers indicate that this species is very vigorous if given the correct conditions. Being an intermediate to highland grower, it is more tolerant of temperature fluctuations.

SCALE: 1-5 (1-easy, 5-challenging)
