General Description
 
Nepenthes sanguinea is an excellent plant for the first-time grower, and is easily one of the most colorful Nepenthes available. Traps are splotched in a fantastic assortment of oranges, yellows, and reds, with only a little bit of green. It can remain compact for many years, which makes it a great candidate for any sunny windowsill. Large, established plants can be quite impressive, with older plants growing traps 9 inches tall! With good lighting, its firm waxy leaves will develop an attractive reddish-bronze hue.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped in a 3-inch pot with the proper growing medium. Pitchers are typically less than an inch, but as the plant matures, it will grow pitchers up to 6 inches within the first year of growth. The last photo is representative of small plants in 3-inch pots for sale.

Please watch the monthly videos for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

5 of 5 High Quality September 14, 2020
Reviewer: Robin Carpenter from West Richland, WA United States  
I was a bit hesitant to buy my first nepenthes since I live in a dry climate, sometimes the humidity can drop below 30% indoors even with my humidifier going. However the SNW youtube videos convinced me to give it a go, and I'm so glad. My plant has adjusted perfectly, it's put out two new pitchers with 2 more on the way, and loves its spot in a particularly bright eastern window. On top of that SNW went out of its way to allay my fears about potential shipping problems, a lot of sellers would not have done so. You get high quality plants and high quality service from Sarracenia Northwest. I'll be recommending them to any fellow carnivorous plant lovers I run into!
