Nepenthes Diana is a tropical carnivorous plant, also known as the Pitcher Plant, that's native to the Philippines. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Nepenthes Diana prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but its growth and pitcher development will be less robust.

  2. Water: Nepenthes Diana prefers to be kept evenly moist at all times, but not waterlogged. Use distilled or rainwater to avoid chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water.

  3. Humidity: Nepenthes Diana likes moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 65-85°F (18-29°C).

  5. Soil: Nepenthes Diana prefers a well-draining potting mix that is made specifically for carnivorous plants. A mixture of sphagnum moss, perlite, and sand works well.

  6. Fertilizer: Nepenthes Diana doesn't require traditional fertilizers, as it gets its nutrients from its prey. However, you can feed it insects or other small prey to help it thrive.

  7. Pitcher Care: The pitchers of Nepenthes Diana require special care to stay healthy. Make sure to keep them filled with water and avoid touching the inside of the pitcher, as this can damage the delicate hairs that trap prey. Additionally, you can remove any dead or dying pitchers to encourage new growth.

  8. Propagation: Nepenthes Diana can be propagated by stem cuttings or leaf cuttings. Take a cutting with a few leaves and a section of stem, and plant it in a pot with moist potting mix. Cover the pot with a plastic bag to create a mini greenhouse, and place it in bright, indirect light.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Nepenthes Diana is relatively pest-free, but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Nepenthes Diana is a unique and fascinating plant that requires specific care to thrive. With proper watering, lighting, and pitcher care, you can enjoy the striking beauty of this carnivorous plant in your home.
