General Description
Named after the acclaimed carnivorous plant grower and author Peter D'Amato, this simple hybrid of Nepenthes lowii and N. ventricosa is an absolute showstopper. Fantastically, it grows perfectly as a houseplant! After acclimating to its new home, 'Peter D'Amato' can produce pitchers that last up to 6 months!

Lower pitchers are stout and squat, so red they're almost black, with bristles under the lid and a ridged peristome. But the upper pitchers are where things take a freakish turn.

Its upper pitchers are absolutely alien. They're rigid things, gourd-like, and colorful. A narrow, toothy peristome forms a precipitous place for insects to crawl - the interior of the trap is glossy red, slippery and tightened to a corseted, waist-like a funnel, ballooning again into a fat "abdomen", from which the tendril connects. The whole trap is a startling shade of bloody-berry-red, with yellow-green highlights. Even for a carnivorous plant, 'Peter D'Amato' is pretty wild.

5 of 5 Sarracenia Northwest: The Gold Standard July 2, 2020
Reviewer: Thomas Carter from Evans, GA United States  
I have purchased lots of carnivorous plants from Sarracenia Northwest.  They are always of robust, superior quality and always arrive impeccably packaged and in perfect condition.  This gives them a huge head start when compared with the weak and stressed plants I have received from other places. Other vendors don't come close to the quality and packaging of these folks, who obviously take great pride in their work. They are the gold standard in carnivorous plant sales.
