Nepenthes x Raven

(3 reviews) Write a Review
The parentage of this hybrid is Nepenthes gymnaphora x boschiana and was bred by Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery. It grows vigorously and can get quite large. Pitchers are of intermediate size, about 6 inches, and favors N. boschiana over N. gymnaphora. A good introductory plant.

    Big healthy Nepenthes x Raven cutting

    Posted by Tim K. on May 29, 2021

    The Nepenthes x Raven cutting I ordered arrived in perfect condition within a week of ordering. It was bigger than expected with three full leaves and a small pitcher. Within a month it produced a second pitcher! I'm happy to add another vigorous LNN hybrid to my collection, and for a reasonable price to boot. Mahalo SNW for another beautiful plant!

    I love this nepenthes' color and texture of the the leaves. A first, I was wondering how big the plant will be because it was only a root cutting. I was worried for nothing because it turned out to be a fairly larger plant than i had expected. Overall, i would recommend this nepenthes to anyone. One of my favorite nepenthes.
