Nepenthes ventricosa [Madja-as x (BE x AG3)], CAR-0101
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. This is a cross between the richly colored Madja-as form and a selected clone from our BE red x AG3 ventricosa grex. We've found these plants to be exceptionally vigorous growers (even by ventricosa standards) and have grown them in our lowland and highland greenhouses with great success. We're delighted since this combines the hardiness we've bred into our ventricosa line with the beautiful markings of the Madja-as form.
