Nepenthes ventricosa x lowii ‘red’

This is a fantastic hybrid between the easy-to-grow highlander Nepenthes ventricosa and the beautifully bizarre Nepenthes lowii. Also known as N. x briggsiana, this cross is a fast grower which holds many pitchers at once. Its tough red pitchers inherit the wide open mouth and attractively striped peristome which often characterise N. lowii hybrids.

The first photo shows pitchers on a mature specimen of this exact clone. The next photos show typical standard-size sale plants, which come ready-potted.

This is a very tolerant and easy-growing cross. For more cultivation advice, refer to my Nepenthes Growing Guide. While both parent species are highlanders, I’ve grown this plant successfully in both highland and warm intermediate conditions. See delivery information.
