This swamp-dwelling species is one of the few that will develop basal rosettes when larger giving the appearance of a carpet of pitchers with no leaves.   Loves high temperatures and humidity.  Pitchers are globose and vary enormously in colouration.

It grows easily in acidic media with high temperatures and humidity. This is the most vigorous clone selected out of a batch of 6. It has the typical red speckled colouration on a green background. The photographs show plants in habitat with similar appearance (courtesy S. McPherson).


*Please note that these plants are grown in extremely humid conditions and will require a period of acclimatization to your growing conditions. Photos are provided for reference and may not represent the size of plant you will receive.
