General Description
Nepenthes x wrigleyana is one of the Victorian hybrids that has been replicated by many growers over the years. The actual parentage is Nepenthes mirabilis x (rafflesiana x ampullaria). We acquired our clone from Sam Estes of Leilani Hapu'u Nursery in Hawaii. The pitchers are very colorful - reddish hues with dark red mottling. The wings on front of the pitcher are from Nepenthes rafflesiana. The thick peristome is from Nepenthes amullaria. Despite its lowland parents, this plant grows amazingly well in our highland greenhouse. It vines readily throughout the year, though it produces pitchers only during the summer when it's warm and bright. Otherwise, it makes a fantastic houseplant.

Reviewer: Robbie McDougal from Lebanon , OR United States  
I couldn't be happier with wrigleyana. Since opening this BEAUTIFUL pitcher plant up out of its packaging I've been completely in love! It already has two new leaves!! I was originally nervous considering it is a lowland plant but, I'm not anymore! Obviously no pitchers but, it's color its fuzziness its whole character is totally perfect! I'm excited to see if I can get it to pitcher this summer.
