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!
Good looking and very healthy.
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.
