Nepenthes bongso is a variable species from Sumatra, with a wide peristome and reddish-purple pitchers. Some clones can have very dark pitchers which almost seem black! The species name bongso refers to the Indonesian legend of Putri Bungsu (literally "youngest daughter"), the spirit guardian of Mount Merapi. Not commonly available, and we only have a few to sell. All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other growers.
