One of the most vigorous crosses we have, this plant grows tall like with white spots and a slightly cowled lid. In late spring and early summer, the traps develop a wonderful orange hue, which mellow to green by mid-summer. As a bonus, it retains most of its pitchers during the winter months. Plants can become quite large, dividing readily and growing quickly. Foliage is uniform and substantial, typically reaching 12-16 inches tall . A great plant for the first-time grower!

Height: 12-16 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).

    Yet another wonderfully packaged and healthy, exquisite plant. Love the colors and the features of two different genera. Since then several mature pitchers have appeared. SNW has the best and does the best (packaging, servicing, videos and advising). Anyone new to carnivorous plants is quickly educated by their team of Jacob and Jeff.

    This pitcher plant arrived in a carefully packaged container and look very healthy. They are taller than I anticipated, but are beautiful and make a nice addition to my garden. I'm sure they've already caught their fair share of insects!

    The rhizome you sent was enormous and is growing very bright green pitchers. Extremely pleased with this plant.

    Doing great so far

    Posted by J.Remy on April 4, 2017

    Received this a month ago and the plant already has one shoot about 10" tall with another at about 6". Once it started growing, it shot up extremely fast. Hopefully it continues to do well! Shipping was great, looks like a lot of attention was put into the package. It arrived in Iowa on a 20 degree day, but had heating pads inside.
