Originating from different tropical regions of the Old World, notably from Asia and Oceania, Nepenthes spp currently has more than 100 species, with hundreds of hybrids and varieties, with large variations of shapes, sizes and colors. We can divide the pitcher plants into two main groups, the upland ones, which grow in mountainous regions and prefer cool nights, and the lowland ones, which greatly appreciate the heat and humidity. The most common hybrids come from lowland species because they are easier to grow. Among the most common hybrids and varieties are: hybrids of N. alata, N. ampullaria, N. khasiana, N. ventricosa, N. alba, N. gracilis, as N. x mixed, N. x ventrata, N. x superba and Nx wrigleyana. Hybrid varieties generally have more ease of cultivation, making them ideal for beginners.

The Nepenthes do not have the right time of year to bloom, which often disrupts their polonization. Its inflorescence appears in racemes or panicles, with small flowers apétalas, being the separated sexes (dioecious plant), which makes necessary both sexes to flourish at the same time so that the fertilization can take place. a small brush is possible to do the pollination artificially. Its fruit is a capsule, dehiscent, containing numerous filiform seeds.
Generally it must be cultivated in environments of diffuse light, in substrate proper for carnivorous of this species, usually mixtures with sphagnum, peat, perlite, pinus bark, vermiculite, fiber of coconut, charcoal and stones, with a final pH of 6. Watering should be frequent, keeping the substrate moist, but without waterlogging. Maintaining moisture in the environment also contributes to a better development of the species. Placing the plant pot on a stone dish, kept with water (demineralized or collected from the rain) or spraying its leaves and jars, are creative ways to offer a better environment for Nepenthes spp.
