The Friend in the Carni world

I bought Nepenthes from Cultivo Carnivores. As this is my first time buying anything other than VFTs i had no idea really how to take care of them.
Theresa has answered my questions, subdued my anxiousness and heightened my excitement.
Shes just a WhatsApp away if i need assistance...
5star service, 5 star deliver:

TROPICAL PITCHER PLANT: Cultivo's mixed Nepenthes (Cultivo Exclusive)

Thank your for the review Daniel, Happy growing! xTx

Quick Service, Good Condition

I ordered some plants for collection and they were ready very quickly. They were nicely packaged with soil.

Not being a true connoisseur, I just got this "Cultivo special". Not sure what type it is but has nice reddish leaves and is starting to form pitchers already. Happy.

Hi James, Thank you for sharing your experience! Happy growing! xTx

      Tropical pitcher plants:  How will you receive your plant?


        More nepenthes




            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

            Nepenthes sizes we offer are determined by the leafspan
