Nepenthes x Lady Luck, is a robust growing carnivorous tropical pitcher plant. The pitchers are typically a deep blood red color all over. Pitchers form easily even in low light and are long lasting. The nodes (length of stem between leaves) are short, and It commonly produces numerous basal offshoots, giving it a dense growing appearance. It has a very wide temperature tolerance and does well in a window. The roots will grow entirely submerged in water. It is quite good at catching many insects, such as: stink bugs, wasps and yellow jackets.  It is a fast grower. It is a great house plant, that can be grown outdoors in the warm weather. It is suitable for beginners.

My plant arrived and is beautiful. Always quality product and plants. Thank you!

Plant is thriving

came in great condition with 5 or 6 pitchers about the size of a grain of rice, after a few months they are now almost the size of quarters and turing a pretty red color. great plant!

Nepenthe X

Love the plan but it arrive dinged up and some of the red bulbs were smooshed. I think it came a couple of days later than expected so maybe that impacted the plant. Planted it immediately in appropriate soil and have kept the tray full of water in a sunny spot for about a week. Leaves are starting to yellow. I’m not convinced it will survive but am holding out hope. Open to any suggestions.

My baby Pitcher Plant

The plant was packed well. It was much smaller than I thought it would be and-- I don't remember what made me think this--I thought there would be dirt packed with it. There wasn't. The roots were tightly wrapped in wet paper towel, and since the sellers were professionals I guessed the way it was packed was sufficient to keep the plant alive during shipment.
I like the fact that there were instructions included.
Communication with the seller was good. I wondered if I should buy plant food. The answer was no. I find it hard to believe this plant will survive off water and sunlight in dirt that has no nutritional value. It seems to be thriving though. It's still "a baby" but I'm hopeful it'll reach its full growth in the next couple years.

Awesome! When it was delivered it was bigger than I expected, but I love it. The colors are awesome and it already had several pitchers on it.
