General Description
 
This complex hybrid, Nepenthes (northiana x maxima) x (rafflesiana x veitchii), grows amazingly well as a houseplant. It does require quite a bit of sunlight and space to accommodate its long vines, but the effort in growing this plant is well worth it. It's pitchers are large with a very thick, colorful, eye-catching peristome.

While we've had our mother plant in our collection for many years, we rarely see it produce pitchers mainly because of our highland conditions. In a home situation, the plant produces pitchers more readily, though you will need to give it lots of space because the leaves on this plant can approach 12-18 inches long.

Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 4-inch pot. All plants are established rooted cuttings that were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.
