General Description
This is Jacob's favorite Nepenthes hybrid. While most examples of this hybrid have rather dark pitchers, this particular clone has very bright, highlighted pitchers. The unique, gorgeous traps are lantern-like, coned-shaped with bright red-orange mottling against a creamy-yellow background.

Nepenthes aristolochioides x thorelii is a very robust grower. It readily produces a long vine with multiple basal shoots and grows awesomely as a houseplant. What more can you ask for!

Wonderful August 30, 2018
Reviewer: Preston from New Mexico  
The cutting arrived very healthy with two large growth points. It needed no acclimation period to start pitchering in ambient room humidity. This is a cool-looking cross that rivals ventrata in vigor and ease of growth. Very happy!

Nepenthes hybrid June 26, 2017
Reviewer: Raymond Kwan from Ann Arbor, MI United States  
I decided to purchase this plant because the description indicated that it is a vigorous grower in the home environment and because I liked the shape of its pitchers.  The plant was well-packed, and it looked very healthy.  A new pitcher started developing not too long after I got it.  Very happy with my purchase!
