Nepenthes nigra is a tropical pitcher plant known from a number of mountains across Central Sulawesi, where it grows at elevations of 1500–2700 m above sea level.[2] The specific epithet nigra refers to the dark colouration of the pitchers and stem.[2][5] The species is closely related to N. hamata and N. tentaculata.[2]
