Nepenthes x hookeriana

And here's my very first pitcher plant, a Nepenthes x hookeriana (Hooker's Pitcher Plant, named after Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker, a famous English botanist and explorer during the 19th Century). Basically a low land plant, a natural hybrid between N. rafflesiana and N ampullaria it is recommended as it is one of the easier species to look after.
