|Great plants for novices and collectors alike, Tropical Pitcher Plants are in the genus Nepenthes. Each leaf forms a long tendril on the end, which in turn gives rise to a cylindrical 'pitcher'. Our Hanging Basket sized Nepenthes are wonderful gifts for that plant-lover you know! Outdoor growing in subtropical areas during the warmer months, and excellent windowsill / terrarium plants as well. Most varieties need filtered bright light, medium-high humidity, and pure water. See our Carnivorous Plant Care page for more detailed information. PLEASE NOTE that a few varieties may have more specific growing conditions, and we do our best to note that in the Item Description for those plants.
