Nepenthes mollis

Elegantly shaped pitchers with a highly developed peristome, beautiful colors, stripes and patterns, hairs all over, dark green to reddish leaves… What’s not to like about Nepenthes mollis? Well, the name, perhaps. N. hurrelliana was a nice homage to Andrew Hurrell, who first studied the plant on Mount Murud, Malaysia, 25 years ago. And it sounded better.

My specimen is a clone from Andreas Wistuba. The cute plant arrived in perfect shape and was immediately potted with some living sphagnum moss.

Pretty leaves. The indumentum is already well developed.
