Nepenthes glabrata

(19 reviews) Write a Review
Nepenthes glabrata is famous for its dainty yet extremely colorful pitchers (up to 4 inches), its vining habit, and its narrow leaves. It prefers very mild daytime temperatures and thrives in bright light. It's a prize for any collector, and a good candidate for the grower who has limited space but plenty of light and a cool growing area. In time, this species can grow long, branching vines that will beautifully adorn your windowsill.

    I purchased a few pitcher plants years ago and I recently just built a indoor greenhouse. So I decided to order the plants that I Fell in love with from the same people. Plants came in fast and all bundled up, they were not dried out and looked great. After a few weeks in the greenhouse, They are in Heaven! Thank You so much guys!!!! Will be buying more soon.

    My nepenthes glabrata arrived in excellent condition. I followed the care tips, and it has already grown three new leaves. Hopefully pitchers will begin growing in the next few months. Sarracenia genuinely cares about it's plants, and has awesome customer service.

    Cool nep

    Posted by BS on August 26, 2019

    I loved my first Glabrata so much I bought a second one. One has pale green colored pitchers while the other has reddish pitchers, both are growing quite well outside (South East US). The small plants are beautiful, larger than expected with long elegant tendrils that extend to the "ground" then pitcher quickly. This is easily my current favorite Nep.
