Description

Nepenthes truncata "Titan" is a large female Nepenthes truncata that is an extremely vigorous and productive breeder. We purchased it from a private grower and its ultimate origin is unknown. "Titan" is a massive plant, and grows in our warm room. It has a compact growth habit, and does not vine. The leaves are wide and truncate, and the pitchers are long, stout, and green, with flared orange-brown peristomes and a very firm texture.
