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 4-inch pot with the proper growing medium. Pitchers are typically 1-2 inches, but as the plant matures, it will grow pitchers up to 6 inches within the first year of growth.

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.

I've enjoyed watching new 'pots' develop from the leaves.

As expected, EXCELLENT!!! April 28, 2019
Reviewer: Reuben Rosenberg from Harrisburg, PA United States  
My Nepenthes sanguinea arrived in excellent condition, and even came with three pitchers! Although it is dwelling indoors for now, it has already feasted on a bunch of ants, and another two pitchers have formed.  Extremely happy with my purchase, again!

Lovely little plant February 28, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Shipped safely and arrived in great condition even though it was midwinter.  As a bonus, there were already a couple small pitchers on the vine. I thought I'd have to wait for them to grow, but they were already grown and healthy!
