Nepenthes Carnivorous Plant

Regular price £40.00 £0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Nepenthes is a genus of carnivorous plants, also known as tropical pitcher plants, or monkey jars. Striking in appearance they feed of the insects they trap in their pitchers. 

Plant will vary in colour and variegation and you may receive a variation of the one pictured. If you'd like to see available options please let me know.

**This plant is the last left of the last delivery - it's missing a few pitchers but still a delight.**
