|This carnivore is Nepenthes ventricosa ‘Rosea’, aka “Red Pitcher Plant”. Many of the carnivore plants grow in bogs and only do well when grown in bog-like conditions. I chose this particular carnivore not only because of its bright red pitchers but also because it can be grown similarly to many common houseplants. I am growing my plants in a simple media of peat moss. Peat is very inexpensive and can be found in any nursery and big-box store. This Nepenthes is a lowlands type, found in elevations below 3000’. Thus, they are warm-loving plants and do best when the temperature is kept above 60 F. They will tolerate temperatures above 90 F so long as there is adequate shading, humidity, and water.
Want to control insects as nature does? Place a few carnivorous plants among your houseplants.
These are 1 yr. old plants, have multiple pitchers, and will be 6-8" tall and 8-10" wide. If interested, contact me via T-mail or email, [email protected]. Give me your location so that I can quote shipping. Bundling multiple plants in a single box reduces the shipping cost per plant substantially. PayPal or check for payment. Discounted pricing for three or more plants, mix or match.
