General Description
 
Nepenthes glabrata is famous for its dainty yet extremely colorful pitchers, its vining habit, and its narrow leaves. It prefers very mild daytime temperatures and thrives in bright light. 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. In time, this species can grow long, branching vines that can beautifully adorn a small windowsill.

Nepenthes April 14, 2019
Reviewer: Lacey G. from Minnesota, United States  
I had a wonderful experience with this company. I will definitely order from them again! I ordered my plant in the early spring, but with crazy Minnesota weather happening, it was too dangerous for the plant to be shipped, even with a hot pack. I was notified quickly that my order would be delayed and it would ship as soon as weather conditions improved. I was really grateful knowing I would be receiving a well cared for plant. It is doing very well and I'm so happy with it.

Plant arrived in Connecticut in top shape as they always do. It is now sitting in an east windowsill along with other Nepenthes and Butterworts.

Nepenthes glabrata February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Matt from Seattle, WA United States  
I received an N. glabrata cutting from Sarracenia Northwest about a month ago. It arrived in great shape and was a nice ~3" diameter plant at that time. It has been putting out new growth and seems happy with my conditions. Very good value for the price, as has been all my previous experience with SNW. Thanks!

Arrived in great shape! January 7, 2019
Reviewer: Jay Holmes from New York , NY United States  
I ordered one Nepenthes glabrata which was well packed and arrived in great shape, very healthy looking and I hope I can keep it that way! I Have it under a 4 T5 bulb fixture, it seems to be doing well so far. It has been about a month, new leaves coming and traps developing.
