Seller description 
  • Nicknamed “The Little Folliculata” this wonderful species is a great choice for people who like the overall look of folliculata but prefer plants that are more compact
  • Growing at the foothills of the Lost Testigos Massif, neighboring hills and lower tepuis, and possibly at the base of Ptari Tepui, collina is fairly wide spread at elevations of 1700-1825m. The name refers to the species preference for colline (or hilly) habitat where it grows in wet substrate and favors seepage sites among low growing but dense vegetation. Sometimes the plant can be completely covered in moss or leaf litter with only the wide circular pitcher opening visible. The pitchers are a pale yellow green and look similar to folliculata though they are smaller, less cylindrical, and produce a nectar spoon that does not form a chamber. Drainage hole is present at the mid-section
  • In habitat collina pitchers can be up to 25cm in length, but in cultivations the plants remain smaller, typically up to 15-18cm at the most. They clump easily producing attractive rosettes which are more upright than folliculata
  • This easy, compact, and forgiving species should be in every collection. Recommended for beginners!
