Nepenthes St. Mercury

(20 reviews)

This complex hybrid was bred by our friend, Sam Estes, of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery. This plant really caught our attention because of its elegant, colorful pitchers, approximately 6-8 inches. Each pitcher has a long neck and a bulbous base. The upper pitchers are also equally elegant, like a Grecian urn. The plant also grows vigorously and produces lots of pitchers during the growing season. It is also the first to produce pitchers in spring and the last to drop its pitchers in winter. It grows very well as a houseplant and is suitable for first-time growers.

Type of Plant: Tropical pitcher plant for indoor growing.
Pitcher Size: Up to 8 inches.
Sunlight: Bright filtered to partial sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts dried sphagnum moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Above 70°F during the day; 55°-70°F during the night. Always protect from frost.

• Established rooted cutting, which may produce lower or upper pitchers.
• Acclimated for windowsill growing.
• Shipped in a 4-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

    Better than expected

    Posted by Gwendolyn on May 20, 2020

    I was shocked at the quality of the plant I received. It already had two pitchers on it and it was perfectly packaged. I have ordered several times with Sarracenia Northwest and I will continue to do so because the plants are always in great condition and the customer service is wonderful!

    I've placed a number of orders, and keep coming back. Plants we're carefully packaged, and healthy upon arrival as always. The St. Mercury has gorgeous pitchers and has continued to put out more in its new home.
