Named after the acclaimed carnivorous plant grower and author Peter D'Amato, this simple hybrid of Nepenthes ventricosa and N. lowii is an absolute showstopper. Lower pitchers are stout and squat, so red they're almost black, with bristles under the lid and a ridged peristome. The upper pitchers are not as darkly colored as the lower pitchers when they first open, but they are very rigid and gourd-like. The interior is glossy red and slippery. The entire pitcher is shaped bulbous-shaped with a tight waist. This plant grows perfectly as a houseplant. After acclimating to its new home, 'Peter D'Amato' can produce pitchers that last up to 6 months!

    Nice plant when it arrived

    It still hasn’t made one pitcher and no one from ask the grower ever gets back to me. I will never order from snw again *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** I'm very sorry about your experience. I checked our records. On July 14, you submitted a question regarding your Nepenthes through Ask The Growers. On July 16, Jeff responded to your question. On July 17, you replied back, "Thank you. That helps a lot." On the Ask The Growers, we state that it can take up to 10 business days to respond due to the number of questions and our workload during peak times. There was another inquiry that you submitted on June 16. I (Jacob) responded to your inquiry that same day. On June 22, you responded back indicating that you were satisfied with my response. There was another inquiry that you submitted on July 1. Because it came on Friday before the weekend of a major holiday, I couldn't get to your message until July 6. An hour after I sent you my response, you wrote to me that you never received any response from me. I wrote back requesting you to check your spam folder. So far, I haven't heard back from you regarding that issue. Both Jeff and I have been as prompt as possible in responding to your messages. We're sorry that if other factors have made you believe that we never respond. I only wish I knew what they were so that we could work towards rectifying them. I wish you the best in your plant endeavors.

    As always arrived well packed. It had 3 tendrils when shipped. One dried up, but the other 2 have developing pitchers. Already produced a new leaf just waiting to see if it has adjusted to my environment enough to have a leaf jump. Fingers crossed! Thank you so much for all the videos and information on growing Nepenthes. I’m just concerned my wife feels neglected with my new hobby.

    I recently ordered a couple Nepenthes hybrids from Sarracenia Northwest and I am extremely pleased with the plants I received. I will definitely be ordering more plants and will be recommending them to others!

    The two plants I got were very well packed and protected. They were large plants and very healthy: started growing new leaves after about 1-2 weeks.

    Perfectly packaged and much larger plant than I expected. It’s a happy and healthy fella growing in a window. I have bought many plants from Sarracenia Northwest and they have all been perfect.
