A classic hybrid, this tropical pitcher plant has striking red, flaring, wide mouths on mature pitchers. It produces thick leaves and the pitchers have a woody texture. This carnivorous plant is wonderful at capturing gnats, fruit flies and mosquitoes! Great for beginners, this plant is an easy windowsill grower.

We recommend planting this plug in our Nepenthes soil.

This plant ships as a 2″ rooted starter plant.
