  • Nepenthes Red bell is a robust grower often creating many growth points along the stem.  Produces medium-sized (around 8-10cm) red to dark red pitchers with reddish leaves when grown in bright light 
  • 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

    • During the autumn and winter months, growth in tropical pitcher plants slows considerably and pitchers will die off

            • 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
