Assorted Nepenthes

| /

Name: Nepenthes sanguinea

AKA: Pitcher Plant

Why we love it: These carnivorous plants are perfect if you want something truly unique. The plant will naturally attract and digests small insects (like fruit flies) in your space. Do not overload the plants by 'feeding' them with large insects to avoid issues.

Light: Bright to bright indirect light. 

Water: These plants have high moisture and humidity needs. Do not allow these plants to dry out. Keep the soil moist at all times, these plants do best if kept in a shallow dish of distilled water. Do not use tap water with any carniverous plants. 

Pet Friendly? Generally, these plants are considered pet-safe. Some reports list them as 'mildly' toxic, however. 

Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
