Nepenthes thorelii x aristolochioides

(29 reviews) Write a Review
Pitchers on this plant are very colorful - bright red-orange mottling against a creamy-yellow background. They are uniquely cone-shaped, almost lantern-like. Nepenthes aristolochioides x thorelii is a very robust grower. It readily produces a long vine with multiple basal shoots and grows awesomely as a houseplant. Pitchers on an adult plant can are typically 6-8 inches.

    The cutting arrived very healthy with two large growth points. It needed no acclimation period to start pitchering in ambient room humidity. This is a cool-looking cross that rivals ventrata in vigor and ease of growth. Very happy!

    Nepenthes hybrid

    I decided to purchase this plant because the description indicated that it is a vigorous grower in the home environment and because I liked the shape of its pitchers. The plant was well-packed, and it looked very healthy. A new pitcher started developing not too long after I got it. Very happy with my purchase!

    It arrived with one small picture but during the last few months, it has grown large enough for me to feed it a cricket and a small roach. It also has two other pictures that will be opening soon, besides another 7 or 8 pictures that are beginning to form.
