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.

My nepenthes glabrata arrived in excellent condition. I followed the care tips, and it has already grown three new leaves. Hopefully pitchers will begin growing in the next few months. Sarracenia genuinely cares about it's plants, and has awesome customer service.

Cool nep August 26, 2019
Reviewer: BS from Moncks Corner, SC United States  
I loved my first Glabrata so much I bought a second one. One has pale green colored pitchers while the other has reddish pitchers, both are growing quite well outside (South East US). The small plants are beautiful, larger than expected with long elegant tendrils that extend to the "ground" then pitcher quickly.  This is easily my current favorite Nep.

Tall and lanky June 12, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This is a vine cutting and doesn't have a basal rosette.  Still, it is healthy and growing well.

Buy from this company May 24, 2019
Reviewer: Jason Birkenbach from Monkton, MD United States  
I immediately bought 2 more after I bought the first. Received in great condition. I was worried about it being shipped but it was incredibly packaged. We spoil ourselves with 2 day amazon shipping, I was not unhappy about the shipping. Well worth it. Will definitely be buying more
