Nepenthes Buttons

(No reviews yet)

We acquired Buttons from Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery. We were originally concerned how it would perform as a houseplant since it is a complex hybrid involving N. thorelii, N. mirabilis, and N. maxima. Hybrids with mirabilis haven't always grown well in our highland greenhouse. However, we were pleasantly surprised that it adapted very well to our growing conditions! During spring and summer, this plant produces very lovely pitchers with subtle markings and colors. If you want a break from loud, attention-grabbing hybrid, Buttons might be one that will show you how sublime Nepenthes can be.
