General Description Plants You Receive Quick Care Guide
 
This clone of Nepenthes spectaiblis x ventricosa was selected from a batch of seed-grown plants originally produced by Borneo Exotics. We kept this particular plant for ourselves because it exhibited heftier and more dramatic pitchers than its siblings. The pitchers have reddish brown specks against a yellow-cream background, and the peristome is boldly striped.

We dubbed this plant Victor because it made a cameo appearance in our video, Victor Flytrap.
