Nepenthes Ventrata is one interesting plant that attracts humans and insects alike. A truly unique and variable plant, it is perhaps not the best option for a novice grower - although it is said to be one of the easiest pitcher plants to grow. Therefore it will make a great choice for the enthusiast. The plant comes in a hanging plastic pot and is ready to start catching those flies!

Size: 12 inches approx with about 8-9 pitchers and two plants in a pot

Pot Size: Grown in 5 inches plastic hanging pot Pot.

Note: Drying up of some pitchers in transit is very normal. The plant produces a pitcher in each new leaf.

The above specifications are indicative only. The actual size and color of the plant may vary.

Watering

Keep the soil moist at all times, making sure that the excess water drains away freely and the plant is not left sitting in water for any length of time. Keep misting the plant occasionally, they love high humidity.

Potting Mix

A soil mix of peat, sand, perlite, orchid bark and chopped Sphagnum works well. Pure live sphagnum moss or “orchid mix” is a good soil alternative.

Light

Nepenthes generally like bright light without much direct sun. About 50% sun or dappled shade is good. Thin, spindly plants or poor coloration are a sign of too weak a light. 


Initial Care (After receiving the plant)

  • Leave the plant in its nursery pot for a day. if the medium looks dry, water it and always make sure to keep the medium moist but not soggy.
  • If the plant has been recently moved so the natural secretions drain out, fill each pitcher with about 1” of distilled water.
Dispatch Details: Plants will be shipped in the same hanging pot.

Arrived intact

I received a healthy plant that arrived intact. There was no breakage during transit. The only issue I find is that my email queries went unanswered. Received the plant in due course so no complaints.
