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!
