Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis

(19 reviews) Write a Review
Pitchers of this hybrid are adorably tubby and very brightly colored in a deep red splotching. The incredible berry-red peristome is moderately flared and slightly scalloped, with prominent ridges. Larger traps on this plant are around 5 inches tall, and just a little over half as wide. Long, wiry tendrils and narrow green leaves are a great contrast to the gorgeous, hefty pitchers.

    As always, SNW continues to supply my addiction to carnivorous plants. The Nepenthes I've received from them have been nothing short of spectacular. They grow extremely well, pitcher very fast, and are hardy growers. They will always on my short list of places to get plants.

    Fantastic, healthy plants

    these arrived perfectly packed in mint condition. They are growing, so far so good, the baby pitchers are starting to grow, I believe this plant had to acclimate to my area, the subtropics, and its now starting to grow more leaves and I can see the pitchers starting to form, I'm so excited to see these get bigger. I will definitely be ordering more from this company!

    Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis - Happy Plant!

    Posted by Deborah Lamoure on January 14, 2019

    The Nepenthes ventricosa x talangensis pitcher plant is very healthy and has done exceptionally well in the short time I have had it. It is quite content, has new leaves and fits in well with my other Pitcher plants. I am very pleased with all of my purchases from Sarracenia and they have excellent communication if you have any questions! Thank you!
