These are fantastic, and get VERY large as well! The Nepenthes merrilliana parent has unbelievably large pitchers...big enough to put your hand inside of!! But the Nepenthes aristolochioides parent produces egg-shaped pitchers with the opening facing forward...which makes these even better! 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-3877.
