Sizing Guide

For most items, there is a size indication on the drop down menu of the product page of each plant.

Nepenthes

Size indicated by leaf span across the entire plant.  We measure across the two largest leaves, excluding the tendrils and pitchers. 

Extra small (XS) - <2" leafspan
Small - 2"-3" leafspan
Medium - 3"-6" leafspan
Large - 6"-12" leafspan
Extra Large (XL) - >12" leafspan  
XXL - Huge plants that are vining and of flowering size

Note: There are a few species that are true minatures (such as N. argentii).  For those, we will still use these sizing guidelines but will indicate what the mature size of the plant will be.

Please read the description since the species to species variability is may be so high that it's best for us to describe the size for each listing.
