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.

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!

Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis - Happy Plant! January 14, 2019
Reviewer: Deborah Lamoure from Joplin, MO United States  
The Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis pitcher plant is very healthy and has done exceptionally well in the short time I have had it. It is quite content, has new leaves and fits in well with my other Pitcher plants. I am very pleased with all of  my purchases from Sarracenia and they have excellent communication if you have any questions! Thank you!
