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.
