Queen of Hearts

Sex: female

Origin: Mt. Pasian, Mindanao, Philippines, 1700 m.

Notes: Robert Cantley (Borneo Exotics) says: “On Mt. Pasian we found two forms of N. truncata, also flowering at different times of the year. One was colorful but not black, and it entered the market as N. truncata “Pasian” or as N. truncata “highland” (although other nearby mountains also host N. truncata) and it's BE3203, previously sold in 43 clones as BE0136 . The other form, the black one, was nearly extinct because of devastating logging activities in the surrounding forest. We have been there in the late 1990s and this form is now believed to be extinct in the wild. The 9 specimens we had (3 of which were given away) were raised from seed in our nurseries and they remained the only ones in cultivation until we made the cross QoH x KoS in 2009, sold with the code BE3307”. This black variety has been described as the new species N. robcantleyi in december 2011.
