  • Nepenthes Miranda is a robust grower under a variety of conditions, and produces very large vibrant pitchers with a red speckled pattern, and striking red ridged peristome.  Pitchers can reach a height of 20-25cm in mature plants
  • Miranda is believed to be a the hybrid of parents N. Maxima x (Maxima x Northiana) and with beautiful pitchers and versatility in growing conditions, this is another excellent plant for beginners that thrives in the late spring
  • This is a specimen plant and you will receive the exact plant pictured - images of mature plants and pitchers are for display purposes only
  • Similar to other carnivorous plants, nepenthes grow in a special type of soil low in nutrients and instead collect their nitrogen in hanging, slippery vase-shaped cups that include its own digestive juice
  • Tropical pitcher plants entice both flying and crawling insects with an intoxicating fragrance, bright colour and sweet nectar
  • Perfect for a sheltered spot outdoors or sunny windowsill with bright diffused light
  • Whether you prefer starting off with a younger plant and watch it grow into full majestic glory over the years or jumping in with more munch, right from the get go, we've got you covered!  Cultivo is all about choices and our plants are available in various sizes and options to suit your every want and need.  Plants are measured across (Leafspan = leaf tip to leaf tip, without tendrils and pitchers) and are sold either bareroot or already potted in our deluxe carnivorous plant soil, ready for action during the upcoming growing season 
  • Winter dormancy:
    • During the autumn and winter months, growth in tropical pitcher plants slows considerably and pitchers will die off
    • Active growth in the form of new leaves and development of pitchers (sizes as indicated) are expected during spring and summer

            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

                        Beautiful and thriving plant!

                        As always, Cultivo has done a fantastic job. The plant is healthy, neatly potted and trimmed, and putting out robust pitchers and leaves. I've been shopping here for years and will continue to - for years to come.
