Nepenthes × hookeriana (/nɪˈpɛnθz ˌhʊkəriˈɑːnə/; after Joseph Dalton Hooker), or Hooker's Pitcher-Plant,[6] is a common natural hybrid involving N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana. It was originally described as a species.

It is a relatively common natural hybrid found throughout the lowlands of Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, and Sumatra.[7][8][9] It is also present on smaller surrounding islands such as Natuna.[10] Like its parental species, the hybrid generally grows in recently disturbed clearings.
