Nepenthes Pitcher Plant is a unique carnivorous plant that uses pitchers to catch prey, like insects. This unusual plant is definitely a conversation piece and fun for anyone, particularly children to experience and learn about carnivorous plants. If you have a fly or gnat problem in your home, this will surely help. Insects are naturally drawn to these plants and are lured into their pitchers, where they become trapped and eventually digested by the plant.

Nepenthes is native to the highlands of Southeast Asia and is found in areas that are very nutrient-poor. Because it doesn’t absorb many nutrients from the soil, it digests insects caught in its pitchers to feed itself. Pitcher Plants enjoy staying consistently moist, and like bright indirect light. With a little care, they will become a great addition to any space.

When your Pitcher Plant arrives, it may be thirsty from the journey and its pitchers may need to be refilled with filtered water. Take a look at the care card that accompanies your Pitcher Plant for further instructions.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We’ve spent a lot of time selecting pots that have optimal drainage, look great, and come with a saucer so your floor or desk won’t get ruined. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
