General Description
 
Nepenthes glabrata is noted for its attractive, multicolored pitchers, long, vining habit, and narrow leaves. It prefers very mild daytime temperatures. It's a prize for any collector, and a good candidate for the grower who has limited space but plenty of light and a cool growing area.
