General Description
 
Nepenthes sanguinea is an excellent plant for the first-time grower. It remains compact for many years, which makes it a great plant for a sunny windowsill. With optimal lighting, its firm waxy leaves will develop an attractive bronze hue, while its pitchers will display a delicate orange tint.

Reviewer: Shikhar Hatwal from Corvallis, OR United States  
The plant was packaged well. It took a few days for it to accumulate to my windowsill and in a month it has already produced three new leaves and two new pitchers.

Excellent, As Always July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Alexander Bradley-Popovich from clarksburg, WV United States  
SNW has never disappointed me. My plants were in excellent condition when I received them and were much larger than I expected. One month out, they continue to thrive. Great products!
