Description: A large and spectacular species from Mindanao Island in the Philippines. This species receives its name from the large truncate or heart-shaped leathery leaves. The pitchers, with their colorful wavy peristome, can be some of the largest in the entire genus, reaching lengths of over 40 cm. Stems are generally non-climbing and compact.
Cultivation recommendations: Generally considered a lowland plant and cultivated in warm conditions, but some growers have found that this plant can tolerate cool temperatures quite well. It is easy to cultivate, but can be rather slow growing when small. See also: How to Grow Nepenthes
