Nepenthes sanguinea is an excellent plant for the first-time grower. It can remain compact for many years, which makes it a great candidate for any sunny windowsill. Large, established plants can be quite impressive, with older plants growing traps 9 inches tall! With good lighting, its firm waxy leaves will develop an attractive reddish-bronze hue.

Pitcher Size: Up to 9 inches.
Sunlight: Bright filtered to partial sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts dried sphagnum moss and perlite only.

The first photo is descriptive of the mother plant in our collection. The last two photos show plants ready for new homes. Pitchers may or may not be present at the time of shipping.
The plant arrived safely and was packaged well. He had one very well developed pitcher already! He’s transitioning nicely (I hope) into his new home.
This plant was healthy on arrival. After a short adaptation period, it is growing nicely, developing new pitchers. I just noticed another small growth with tiny pitchers at the base of the plant.
This nepenthe, out of all that I have hitherto purchased, came delivered the most healthy. No leaves were rotten, the substrate was very moist, the plant was healthy and in very good condition and it came far earlier than I expected! I am well-pleased! I have planted it in a lava rock of sorts and I hope it stays awhile. Here's to hoping that I don't kill it.
The nepenthes arrived beautifully packaged, and showed no real signs of decline, even after 7 long days with the USPS. This is my first nepenthes, so I wasn’t quite sure how it’d do, but since it’s arrived it has put out a new pitcher with a freshly popped lid (woot!!) and is working on another. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase. Will definitely order from SNW again.
I was a bit hesitant to buy my first nepenthes since I live in a dry climate, sometimes the humidity can drop below 30% indoors even with my humidifier going. However the SNW youtube videos convinced me to give it a go, and I'm so glad. My plant has adjusted perfectly, it's put out two new pitchers with 2 more on the way, and loves its spot in a particularly bright eastern window. On top of that SNW went out of its way to allay my fears about potential shipping problems, a lot of sellers would not have done so. You get high quality plants and high quality service from Sarracenia Northwest. I'll be recommending them to any fellow carnivorous plant lovers I run into!
The plant arrived great and the plant is doing well. I would buy from Sarracenia Northwest again.
Plant received was bigger than expected with several nice pitchers. Has effortlessly transitioned to growing in my home and is steadily growing new leaves.
Quickly delivered, wonderfully packaged with clear instructions. Plant is thriving in my sunny-est window.
My plant came in healthy and with decent pitchers. They have been with me about a month and the pitchers are still in good shape, with strong light the leaves are turning a nice dark brownish red.
ive had it for one month and itâ€™s already grown 2 new pitchers
Beautiful plant and it was delivered quickly.
