This is the real deal...pure Nepenthes spathulata, and a great addition to your collection! Nepenthes spathulata is well-known and highly sought after by collectors for its ease of growth, large pitchers, and nice overall coloration. In fact, it is commonly used as a parent in creating hybrids due to these features! The peristome (lip) gets a bronze tint as they mature too! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers.
