Diversity on the lowland pitcher plants (Nepenthes spp.) in Central Kalimantan were conducted between August 2005 and September 2006 at three locations study.

We found sixteen Nepenthes at study area, divided nine Nepenthes species; N. albomarginata, N. ampullaria, N. gracilis, N. hirsuta, N. mirabilis, N. rafflesiana, N. reinwardtiana, N. stenophylla, one unidentified Nepenthes species and seven natural hybrid; N. xhookeriana (N. rafflesiana x N. ampullaria), N. xtrichocarpa (N. gracilis x N. ampullaria), N. xneglecta (N. gracilis x N. mirabilis), N. mirabilis x ampullaria, N. mirabilis x rafflesiana, N. reinwardtiana x N. mirabilis and N. reinwardtiana x gracilis. Heath forest and peat swamp forest are generaly the habitat of lowland Nepenthes at Central Kalimantan.
