General Description
Thanks to its Nepenthes spectabilis parentage, the traps on this plant are among the most ornate in our collection! It's also very fast-growing. Thanks to N. ventricosa, it produces pitchers almost non-stop! Pitchers are fabulously colorful with dark red mottling and a broad, striped peristome. A gem that even seasoned Nepenthes collector's won't want to pass up!

Nepenthes ventricosa x spectabilis. April 2, 2017
Reviewer: Gary Walker from Maryville, TN United States  
The plant has grown two new leaves but concerned that no pitchers have developed yet.  The plant arrived well packaged and healthy.   Happy with your product.
