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!

Nice plant, quick delivery! June 24, 2019
Reviewer: Ricardo de Ycaza from Corvallis, OR United States  
As usual, SNW delivers great quality plants. Plant arrived quickly and in great shape. Considerable sized cutting with two growth points. Immediately began producing new leaves and pitchers. I will always be a faithful customer of SNW.

Outstanding Customer Service January 22, 2019
Reviewer: Karlie Ligore from University Heights, OH United States  
I had an issue with the shipping being delayed and not getting my plants in time for Christmas to give to my sister. I was upset, for not only were they late, but they were in the box for 6 days! I wrote an email expressing my concern for the life of the plants as well as being upset about the shipping, since I said I needed them by a particular date and gave an advanced notice. However, Jacob responded to my email with his sympathy and professionalism. He reimbursed me for my purchase. I rarely complain about anything and this was not what I was looking for at all. I just wanted to make sure that it was known that the plants may not live to the 30 day guarantee. With this being said, with how they handled the situation, I would definitely purchase from this company again. They really care about their customers and the quality of their plants. Thank you so much. Also, my sister loves the pitcher plant and the drosera! :)
