SIZE AND VARIATION DETAILS:


Large plant example

1. Nepenthes plants listed as LARGE are generally seedlings grown on. These are mature plants (with pitchers)!

2. Nepenthes plants listed as ROOTED CUTTINGS(rcs) are established plants produced from cuttings from our own select stock plants.
The cutting plants are a minimum of 6 months old and may or may not have pitchers when sold.


Small size plant example

3. Nepenthes plants listed as SMALL can vary in size but are usually a minimum of 10cm(4") in diameter and are propagated from seed.

A lot of the hybrids pictured on our site are examples of the progeny from the batch of seedlings from the cross and the plant pictured is one of many possible variants.
Unless you specify a particular variant, we will pick what we think is best of the available variants.
As the specific variants, that are pictured on our catalogue, become mature enough to propagate by cuttings we can then offer the ones pictured.
