In Nepenthes world, the shape and colours of pitchers and leaves are determined by the characteristics of the various species
Pitcher sizes are also highly variable across species and may not be present at the time of shipment, therefor we measure the actual size of the plant to determine the size of the plants we offer
Tropical pitcher plants are measured across the leafspan (from leaf tip to leaf tip of the largest two leaves, not including the tendrils and pitchers) as seen in the image below

My little (well not so little) corno neenyo came in great condition, definition and packaging - I am very impressed - Cultivo Carnivores takes great pride in their plants and work - would definitely recommend to any carno lover!
very happy with my new creatures
After two weeks the plant is still growing strong and putting out new pitchers. Cultivo Carnivores was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be buying from here again.
Beautiful plant with healthy pitchers
Plant was in good condition after shipping, instructions for planting and keeping are easy to follow and have made for a happy plant. :) Even though it's winter the plant settled down quite easily and is growing well. Definitely worth the money and very appealing to look at.
