These are some striking plants when mature! The lower pitchers are typically very darkly colored and patterned, which is a beautiful plant anyway. But as the plant begins to vine and produce upper pitchers, many of the plants will have pitchers that take on a ghostly white look, but with red speckles and a candy-striped peristome. Fantastic! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow, not bareroot as you often find with other suppliers. Water and enjoy!
