This species is named after the black nectar glands that dot the stem and tendrils. The stem, tendrils, and margins of the leaves are also fuzzy. Pitchers are slightly tubby and heavily mottled with a relatively thin peristome. When in its vining stage, the plant can be very large. The clone we offer is female.
