Nepenthes (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) ‘Squat’ x truncata ‘Red’ (EP)

An extra-large specimen of this cross from Exotica Plants in Australia. I’ve found this to be an exceptionally vigorous grower and the pitchers on it are already enormous. This particular plant seems to have inherited the colour of the male parent and the nice squat proportions of the mother. Take a look at the parent plants in the third photo to get some idea of what you can expect as this thing gets bigger!

This plant will be shipped bare root, with a ball of sphagnum moss around the roots. Please make sure you have a big pot and some suitable media to use when you receive it. Postage costs £6 via first class signed-for delivery in the UK, and is free for orders over £60.

This is a very tolerant and easy-growing cross. I’ve grown this plant successfully in both highland and warmer intermediate conditions. For more cultivation advice, see my Nepenthes Growing Guide.
