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.

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.
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!!
In great shape and has already put on several new leaves.
Very well packaged! The nepenthes arrived with baby pitchers. Soooo adorable â¤
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!
I ordered 2 plants and both arrived in excellent health with clear care sheets. These are my first pitcher plants and bith ate growing well, producing new pitchers, and have me hooked on getting more. Fantastic site and plants.
The plants arrived safe and healthy as usual. Jeff and Jacob always do a great job and there products are top notch. I highly recommend these sellers.
Excellent product. Great gift. Both orders have seen growth.
Great size and giving me multiple leaves and pitchers. Both plants are very vigorous!
