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 Never Disappoints December 7, 2019
Reviewer: Tyler from Urbanna, VA United States  
About 5 months ago, I purchased a N. Spectabillis X Talangensis as my first nepenthes from these guys. I was super impressed with what I received and it seems to love the conditions in my apartment and has doubled in size. So I wanted to get another highland nepenthes since it seems to love the conditions of my apartment so I got the sanguinea and ventricosa to add to my collection. As always, super impressed with the packaging and both came with multiple pitchers already on it. I refuse to buy from anywhere else, thats how high quality the plants you will receive from here are.

5 of 5 Excellent Condition June 2, 2019
Reviewer: Alexander Snyder from NJ United States  
The plant arrived in great condition, and took off growing new pitchers almost immediately. I bought this one for work, and was so happy I bought two more for my house and one for my parents.
