What a showstopper! The Citron EX has enormous, stout red pitchers with gigantic, wavy, white and red hoods. Everyone who visits the nursery always stops to admire this beauty. However, patience is required when growing this plant because it grows exceedingly slowly. If you're patient enough, you may see pitchers approach 16 inches tall.

    Great experience

    Posted by Cody Walke on September 17, 2017

    read many great reviews of this vendor on Garden Watchdog, and have seen their plants at various shows. So i felt great to receive a plump healthy [lant that is settling in nicely. I do have a question about another plant I purchased at a show about 4 years ago, but I will email with that.
