||Found in upper montane mossy forest where it grows terrestrially and epiphytically.
Elevation 1700-2000 m.
|| ||The oddly swollen pitchers of this species can reach up to 15 cm in length. They are usually coloured yellowish green with a reddish cast, though the interior is often dark purple. The enormous lid is held vertically over the pitcher and its undersurface is covered with numerous short tubercles amongst which a sweet white substance is secreted. The leaves are large, leathery, and oblong in shape.
|| ||This species bears close resemblance to the more common N. lowii, however it differs in having a more pronounced peristome, shorter lid appendages, and a saddle-like stem attachment. Previously this species was known only from Kalimantan Borneo, but it has recently been discovered in Sarawak.
