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.

Reviewer: Mark Georgio from Woonsocket, RI United States  
I purchased a few pitcher plants years ago and I recently just built a indoor greenhouse. So I decided to order the plants that I Fell in love with from the same people. Plants came in fast and all bundled up, they were not dried out and looked great. After a few weeks in the greenhouse, They are in Heaven!   Thank You so much guys!!!! Will be buying more soon.
