For those who like unique and rare Nepenthes plants, this species is a winner! Nepenthes nigra is extremely uncommon in collections, and we were fortunate to have seen it in the wilds of Sulawesi during our trip there in 2013 (where it grows in similar habitat to Nepenthes hamata)! As its name implies, it is characterised by beautiful super-dark, almost black speckled patterning on the pitchers, and an extremely delicate-looking peristome as well. WOW! This species is very rare in cultivation. All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, as you have come to expect from PetFlyTrap.com. Get one while we even have them!
