Nepenthes ‘Alata’, commonly known as Pitcher Plant, is a carnivorous plant with large-growing, nectar-rich ‘pitchers’ that lure insects in and digest them. Truly a wonder of nature! The ‘pitchers’ mature up to 8″ tall with intense red speckling and hang down from the green foliage.
Excellent in a windowsill or hanging basket. Carnivorous plants survive best in containers. Plant and grow in moist to wet soil mix: 50% peat moss, 50% perlite. Water with pure, low mineral water. Do not fertilize or force feed.
