If you're familiar with Nepenthes x "Kohala" (a hybrid produced by Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery), you might recognize Ruby Alice. This plant is from the same seed batch as Kohala, but was selected as a unique clone.

The main features that set this plant apart from its sisters are its upper and intermediate pitchers. The upper pitchers are funnel-shaped and creamy yellow with shades of red. Dark red rims seem to help make this plant really stand out. The intermediate pitchers (first photo) are also funnel-shape, but retains some of the dark colors of the lower pitchers.

This plant can tolerate quite a bit of light. When the leaves develop a bronze hue, you know your plant is getting adequate sunlight.

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