Nepenthes Mirabilis - Common Pitcher Plant

15 Seeds

Native across southeastern Asia and even parts of northern Australia, this highly variable pitcher plant typically grows on a vine that can reach up to 15m. Leaves are broad, with a tendril that grows from the tip that eventually grows into the pitcher.

Pitchers have elongated cups and can range in colour from yellow to red to green. They have a smooth lining that make it impossible to keep grip on; once trapped, its prey is digested by a strong digestive fluid similar to mammalian digestive processes.

In the wild, it is found in wetlands such as bogs and swamps. As such, it prefers well-drained soils that retain water well and does not enjoy long periods of wet.

Frost tender, keep above 10C.
