Nepenthes ventricosa x spectabilis

(18 reviews)

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. It's certainly a gem that even seasoned Nepenthes collectors won't want to pass up!

    Outstanding Customer Service

    Posted by Karlie Ligore on January 22, 2019

    I had an issue with the shipping being delayed and not getting my plants in time for Christmas to give to my sister. I was upset, for not only were they late, but they were in the box for 6 days! I wrote an email expressing my concern for the life of the plants as well as being upset about the shipping, since I said I needed them by a particular date and gave an advanced notice. However, Jacob responded to my email with his sympathy and professionalism. He reimbursed me for my purchase. I rarely complain about anything and this was not what I was looking for at all. I just wanted to make sure that it was known that the plants may not live to the 30 day guarantee. With this being said, with how they handled the situation, I would definitely purchase from this company again. They really care about their customers and the quality of their plants. Thank you so much. Also, my sister loves the pitcher plant and the drosera! :)

    Quite definitely one of my favorites. This one's another strong grower that didn't hesitate to settle into my garden and is already beginning to develop pitchers since arrival

    The plant has grown two new leaves but concerned that no pitchers have developed yet. The plant arrived well packaged and healthy. Happy with your product.
