(17 reviews)
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).

    Nepenthes X Gaya

    Posted by Hreb Goldberger on April 16, 2021

    Disappointingly, I can only issue a 5 star rating. I would prefer to make it a 10. My 2 Nepenthes came in perfect condition, well packed, and very quickly. Being new to carnivorous plants, especially Nepenthes, I was concerned. I just followed the advice provided, and both Ns are doing spectacularly well.On both plants,I have several pitchers developed already, with more growing in. In about another week or two I plan on moving both to a larger, hanging basket. I am so pleasef with your firm for a number of reasons. Your service is unheard of. I never experienced a grower contacting me to ask how the plants are doing. Much appreciated ! Your shippping is terrific. Your videos are so informative, and enjoyable, I feel as though I am visiting with a friend who is sharing advice with me. Very importsntly is the fact that you encourage customers to ask questions, and you find time in your busy day to respond. My interesst in these carnivorous plants is growing, and more will be added. As far as I am concerned, Sarracenia Northwest is the only place to deal with when it comes to carnivorous plants. Herb

    My plant was healthy when it arrived & in the month I’ve had it, it has grown 2 new pitchers & doubled in size! I’ll definitely be ordering more plants from this place in the future!
