General Description
 
Hummer's Okee Classic is a registered cultivar with the International Carnivorous Plant Society. Thought it's been around since 2002, this plant is rare to find. In fact, we only recently acquired a mother plant in 2017. Hopefully, we can generate enough divisions over the years to make this plant more available.

The plant has tall pitchers with a dark triangular hood that covers the opening of the pitcher. A very mature clump can produce pitchers up to 24 inches with hoods several inches across.

Plants You Receive
Plants are shipped in 4-inch pots with proper growing media. Each plant is a division from select mother plants in our collection. Pitchers are expected to reach 12 inches during their first season after division.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.
