GOOD TO KNOW
Dead/shriveled pitchers? Nepenthes pitcher plants may or may not have pitchers at the time of shipping but are mature enough that they will soon grow new ones. If you receive a pitcher plant with dead/shriveled pitchers, this will not impact the health of the plant; just clip the old pitchers with sterile scissors to make room for new ones to grow.
Plant size. Our plants ship in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 3-6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
