Care Sheet for Nepenthes 'Pink Lady'

Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' is a cultivar of tropical pitcher plant known for its stunning pink pitchers and unique foliage. Proper care is essential to ensure the health and vitality of this beautiful plant. Here's a care sheet tailored for Nepenthes 'Pink Lady':

Light Requirements:

  • Provide your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' with bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a location where it can receive ample sunlight, such as near a south-facing window or under grow lights. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight, as it can lead to leaf burn.


  • Maintain warm temperatures for your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady', ideally between 70°F to 85°F (21°C to 29°C) during the day. At night, temperatures can drop slightly, but avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) for extended periods.


  • Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' thrives in high humidity environments. Aim for humidity levels between 50% to 70%. You can increase humidity by placing the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water or by using a humidifier.


  • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' with distilled water, rainwater, or purified water to avoid mineral buildup. Water the plant thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away.


  • Plant your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' in a well-draining, acidic soil mix. A mixture of sphagnum moss, perlite, and orchid bark works well. Avoid using potting mixes with added fertilizers or nutrients, as these can harm the plant.


  • Use a pot with adequate drainage holes to plant your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady'. Ensure the pot is large enough to accommodate the plant's root system and provide room for growth. Repotting may be necessary every 1-2 years as the plant grows.


  • Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' is a carnivorous plant that derives nutrients from insects captured in its pitchers. While it can catch prey on its own, you can supplement its diet with occasional feeding of small insects or fish food pellets.


  • Provide a support structure such as a trellis or moss pole for your Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' to climb. This mimics its natural habitat and allows the plant to grow and develop properly.


  • Remove any dead or yellowing leaves or pitchers as needed to maintain the plant's overall health and appearance. Prune away spent pitchers to encourage new growth.

Pest Control:

  • Keep an eye out for common pests such as aphids, spider mites, and scale insects. If pests are present, treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil, following the manufacturer's instructions.

By following these care guidelines, you can enjoy a healthy and thriving Nepenthes 'Pink Lady' in your home or garden, showcasing its beautiful pink pitchers and foliage.
