Nepenthes Deroose Alata

(62 reviews)

Deroose Alata is an excellent plant for the beginner. It's easy to grow, and you really have to go out of your way to kill it. Pitchers are durable and beautifully pink-red. On larger plants, pitchers can be 6 inches tall. This plant also grows quicker than other types of Nepenthes. You can end up with a long vine in just a few months, which makes this plant one of the most rewarding carnivorous plants to grow. Many garden centers mistakenly label this plant as Nepenthes Alata. However, it is actually a hybrid, Nepenthes alata x ventricosa.

Pitcher Size: Up to 6 inches.
Sunlight: Bright filtered to partial sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).

    Nepenthes Deroose Alata

    I absolutely LOVE the plant. It is doing well so far. I water only with rainwater, and have it situated on a shelf where it gets at least 4 hours a day of sun, and then I switch it to another shelf for some more sun light.I have several leaves where at the tips I can see the new pitchers developing. I also took your advice from your site, and bought the flourescent bulbs for plants, and they pick up the slack for cloudy days. I am anxiouis to see the pitchers grow in size. I have many orchids, but I am becoming more and more fascinated by these carnivorous plants. I read somewhere, that liquid fertilizer on the acid side, and diluted, can be added, What are your thoughts on this? I am geatly pleased, and impressed by the tremendous customer support that you fellas offer, and I hope to acquire more plants from you once the winter is gone. Stay safe, and thank you for your concern. Herb

    Beautiful shipping

    The mailman worried me because he accidentally left my package in a neighbors box. Lucky my neighbor brought it over to me. I quickly opened it to see 2 pitchers hanging beautifully. A little scuffed cause im sure the kid holding it wasn't holding it carefully. But she is still thriving. As much as i hate the fruit flies in my kitchen she loves em. She's a beautiful plant to add to my collection.

    tropical pitcher plant: Nepenthes x Deroose Alata

    Posted by Unknown on June 29, 2020

    Plant arrived in good time and in good condition, actually bigger than I expected. Two pitchers were about 4" tall, one other was beginning to form, and a few weeks later is about 2" tall. They're being kept on a bay windowsill, in an aquarium tank with some transparent plastic wrapping, which helps keep the humidity over 60%. I give it any house flies I can snag, as well as an occasional meal worm. Good job!!
