Nepenthes sanguinea

(81 reviews)
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.

    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!
