Slender Pitcher-Plant

Nepenthes gracilis

''Nepenthes gracilis'' , or the Slender Pitcher-Plant, is a common lowland pitcher plant that is widespread in the Sunda region. It has been recorded from Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Sulawesi, Sumatra, and Thailand. The species has a wide altitudinal distribution of 0 to 1100 m above sea level, although most populations are found below 100 m and plants are rare above 1000 m. Despite being a widespread plant, natural hybrids between ''N. gracilis'' and other species are quite rare.

''Nepenthes gracilis'' was formally described by Pieter Willem Korthals in his 1839 monograph, "Over het geslacht ''Nepenthes''".

''Nepenthes abgracilis'' from the Philippines is named for its superficial similarity to this species.
