Tropical pitcher plants come from Asia and Indonesia, and are a wonderful conversation piece, especially when grown in a hanging basket. Nepenthes ventricosa is no exception! Each leaf forms a tendril on the tip, which gives rise to a beautifully sculptured pitcher on the end. The pitchers of this species have a beautifully scalloped peristome (lip), and turn a beautiful reddish color as they mature as well. Adult plants can be over two feet across! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress. Easy beginners' species!!
