Nepenthes sanguinea

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.

    High Quality

    Posted by Robin Carpenter on September 14, 2020

    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!

    Plant received was bigger than expected with several nice pitchers. Has effortlessly transitioned to growing in my home and is steadily growing new leaves.

    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.

    Carnivorous Plant

    I ordered 2 plants. I was really impressed at how fast they arrived. They were packed so well I think the could have survived a fall off a 10 story building. They were in the best shape. Both are growing nicely and putting out new little pitchers. I will be using Sarracenia Northwest for any other plants I need. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

    I love this handsome fellow!

    It arrived quickly and was packaged well. It holds many pitches and was about 3-4 inches in leaf diameter. The little pitches are green and has red spots on the inside walls. Can't wait until it grows into maturity!
