The hood is narrow and the wings are wide and ruffled. It is heat tolerant and does well in a window. It is quite good at catching large insects, such as: stink bugs, wasps and yellow jackets.  It is a fast grower. Stems can be trimmed to keep the plant bushy, and to start cuttings. It is a great house plant, that can be grown outdoors in the warm weather. It is suitable for beginners.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL plant- came very small and a little beat up from shipping, but it bounced back quickly, grew very fast, and is now happily producing huge pitchers! I’ve had it for a few months now, and it’s been a very forgiving plant during the heatwave and vacations where it got no water. Would definitely order from Carnivorous Plant nursery again.

Nepenthes and BFT Order

All 3 plants arrived in a timely manner and we're still really healthy. Since repotting all 3 plants are continuing to thrive.

Many places you don’t get what you pay for, but not here. Definitely worth the money


I remember seeing this nepenthes in a book once as a child and always wanted one of these. And now as an adult I finally have one! To me this is the icon of nepenthes. Plant came healthy as usual, very vibrant green on them as well.
