Nepenthes ventricosa x spectablis

(18 reviews) Write a Review
Pitchers on this hybrid are fabulously colorful with dark red mottling and a broad, striped peristome. In fact, it's one of the most ornate pitchers around! The plant also grows relatively quickly and is adaptable to many growing conditions, which makes it suitable as a houseplant. Pitchers on a mature plant often grow to 6-8 inches. It's certainly a gem that even seasoned Nepenthes collectors won't want to pass up!

    I love ordering from Sarracenia NW! Their plants are always in such good shape when they arrive and grow like weeds on my windowsill. Will definitely order from them again.
