Nepenthes edwardsiana is perhaps the most highly sought-after Nepenthes in our collection. With its spectacularly hooked peristome on tall, red pitchers; it stands out in any collection. Edwardsiana is stunning but can be hard to grow and slow. This has been combined this spectacular but difficult plant with the ease of ventricosa.
Nepenthes ventricosa is beautiful on its own but is also famous for being a vigorous and easy-to-grow plant. Combining these genetics has everyone on California Carnivores very excited at the possibilities! These are seed-grown!
