Nepenthes ventricosa is a perfect beginner’s plant! Hailing from the Phillipines, it's known for being one of the hardiest and most adaptable Nepenthes species. It produces waisted, waxy pitchers that are tough and long-lasting.
The plants for sale here are a cross from our greenhouses between the richly colored JB and a selected clone from our MT grex. We've found these plants to be exceptionally vigorous growers (even by ventricosa standards) and have grown them in both our warm and cool greenhouses with great success.
Plants are seed grown unless otherwise specified so some variability between individuals is expected.
See our Nepenthes growing guide for more information on how to grow them.
This product is considered a Intermediate Tropical plant. Please see our Shipping and Guarantees policy for cold/hot weather shipping guidelines.
In islands where tropic breezes play,
A carnivorous plant calls home, they say.
Beginners rejoice, for I'm easy to tend,
In the archipelago where my pitchers extend.
Where am I, where friendly vines unfold?
A novice's joy in a land of gold.
