Nepenthes ventricosa x mikei Potted
We don’t believe this cross has ever been done before! Nepenthes mikei is highly collectible because of its nearly black pitchers; however it is infamously shy to flower. Ours did flower, and we were able to cross it with a beautiful red ventricosa. We are very excited to see how these will turnout but we expect an easy, vigorous plant with lots of dark red pitchers. All individuals from seed, exclusive to California Carnivores.
