Nepenthes Peter D'Amato

(44 reviews)

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!

Type of Plant: Tropical pitcher plant for indoor growing.
Pitcher Size: Up to 8 inches.
Sunlight: Bright filtered to partial sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts dried sphagnum moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Above 70°F during the day; 55°-70°F during the night. Always protect from frost.

• Established rooted cutting, which may produce lower or upper pitchers.

    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.

    I got this plant about a month ago. It's doing so well, and has already grown a pitcher that's about to open up. The plant arrived in perfect condition. You all take such great care in packing them for shipping.

    Nice big cutting of a legendary cross!!

    Posted by Tim K. on May 5, 2021

    The rooted cutting that I ordered came in perfect condition, as Jacob says "as if it came right out of the SNW greenhouse." It didn't have any ptichers (as expected) but it was clearly rooted and well-established. The PDA cutting seamlessly transitioned to it's new envoironment in my greenhouse and started pushing new growth a couple of weeks later. I can't wait to see this legendary hybrid start to put out pitchers. I highly recommend SNW Nepenthes cuttings to any collector looking to pick up well-established cuttings of some amazing species and hybrids!!

    Will be buying again!

    Super large rooted cutting that has been already established, reasonably priced. Came in nicely packaged and pest free. I would definitely buy from Sarracenia Northwest again. Thank you so much for the great service!

    Awesome cutting, huge leaf spawn, and it came in great condition; there was care in the packaging and I would recommend Sarracenia Nortwest, they are awesome.
