Nepenthes x Gaya

(13 reviews) Write a Review
Nepenthes Gaya was originally bred by Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes in 2004. This is the first of his plants to be mass produced and widely available. A full size plant will sport 6-inch colorful pitchers with red-orange splotches against a yellow background. It grows very well as a houseplant and appreciates lots of bright filtered sunlight or partial sun. The full parentage of this plant is Nepenthes khasiana x (ventricosa x maxima).

    The plant arrived well packed and in good shape, despite going to a PO Box and sitting there several days. It has just kept growing, with new pitchers appearing and I love it. The trick will be keeping it going all winter. Very happy.

    Pitchers and more Pitchers

    I honestly thought this plant wasn't going to do much. I was preparing myself for the worse. But with a little attention its started to give me more and more pitchers leaves look healthy too.

    Beautiful plant

    Love the shape and coloration. Came with two developed pitchers that took a dent out of the late spring gnat invasion in my bathroom. Seems to be adjusting well, although the new leaves are coming in red. Maybe it’s getting too much sun?

    They arrived in pristine condition with 2 pitchers that caught flies within the first 36 hours. I've had them for a month and there's already new pitchers forming. I can't recommend this farm highly enough

    Growing in a sunny windowsill in Colorado. Grown a second pitcher in a month and working on two more. Love this plant and plan to get more.
