General Description
 
With it's red highlights and broad features on long, cascading tendrils, Nepenthes talangensis x ventricosa looks almost like a smaller version of Nepenthes rajah.

Pitchers are adorably tubby and very brightly colored in a deep red splotching. The incredible berry-red peristome is moderately flared and slightly scalloped, with prominent ridges. Larger traps on this plant are around 5 inches tall, and just a little over half as wide. Long, wiry tendrils and narrow green leaves are a great contrast to the gorgeous, hefty pitchers.

5 of 5 Excellent plant! May 10, 2020
Reviewer: Graham from Knoxville, TN United States  
As always, SNW continues to supply my addiction to carnivorous plants. The Nepenthes I've received from them have been nothing short of spectacular. They grow extremely well, pitcher very fast, and are hardy growers. They will always on my short list of places to get plants.

5 of 5 Fantastic, healthy plants February 7, 2019
Reviewer: Holly Hokenstrom from DELRAY BEACH, FL United States  
these arrived perfectly packed in mint condition. They are growing, so far so good, the baby pitchers are starting to grow, I believe this plant had to acclimate to my area, the subtropics, and its now starting to grow more leaves and I can see the pitchers starting to form, I'm so excited to see these get bigger.
I will definitely be ordering more from this company!
