This hybrid combines two fantastic features into one plant! The Nepenthes ventricosa parent is Borneo Exotics' best red form, and is known for its easy growing habits. And the Nepenthes aristolochioides parent is known for having some of the most strangely shaped pitchers, with an oval shape and a reduced pitcher opening that is located on the front surface of the pitcher (rather than on top as with other species). NEAT! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers. For those who are keeping records, this is Borneo Exotics' item BE-3447.
