    One of the quintessential beginner carnivorous plants, and one of the better ones to try if it's your first time with seeds. This species can grow to over a foot across (though usually 4-6 inches) with semi-erect, strap shaped leaves colored bright yellow-green with red tentacles. The leaves will actively move when stimulated by prey, wrapping around whatever is fed to or caught by them. Typically prolific in blooming, when happy they will send up hairy, foot long stalks with numerous very large, self-pollinating pink flowers. Packets contain 30-50+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and grows in a variety of conditions but will do best in sandy soils in cool, strong light environments. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.

    As the name suggests, while the leaflets look fairly similar, the patterning and colors of this plant can vary immensely, with the thick petioles sporting anything from solid shades of green to blotches, to mottling, or even a mix of them all. Individual clones tend to retain particular appearances, but can vary some between seasons even. Though none of mine have yet matured enough to bloom, they will eventually produce spectacular flower stalks up to 4 feet tall with lengthy white or pinkish spadixes surrounded by similarly variable, slender spathes, and they are reported to smell something like ripe durians.

    Two clones are available, Clones D and E, tubers between 1-2" in diameter. If multiples are purchased, a mix of clones will be sent where possible, and other clones may become available as they go dormant.

    Tubers are shipped dry-wrapped and padded, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted.

    This is a famous "dark" maxima clone from Borneo Exotics that was originally labeled as N. eymae. Lower pitchers can grow to more than a foot tall, cylindrical with heavy tan/brown and deep red to blackish mottling, the peristome aging from mildly striped cherry to almost black as well. Upper pitchers, though I haven't seen them yet, are narrow in the base and broadly funnel-shaped above, with a narrower striped peristome and crinkled lid held above the mouth. And, this should be a female.

    One of three clones from this locality that I grow, this form does not develop pitchers as red as either of its siblings, but has a distinctively different growth shape, with more cylindrical overall proportions. Both lower and upper pitchers are mainly green with red highlights and sometimes speckling, and tend to average between 2-3 inches tall.

    Available plant is a rooted cutting with established new growth approximately 5 inches in diameter.

    There are seemingly two forms of plants that are in trade under the unofficial title "Gentle," one an obvious "fusca" x maxima cross with dark pitchers, and then the form that I have that looks like "fusca" x mixta. Lower pitchers are very slender and cylindrical, can reach over 8 inches long, with bright cream-pink flushed and red mottled pitchers and a narrow, teardrop-shaped mouth with a cylindrical peristome striped in light and dark red. Upper pitchers are much paler an funnel-shaped, light green with sparse spots. This clone is also a known male.

    Available plant is a rooted cutting approx. 5" in diameter.

    A homemade complex hybrid that sports a number of traits that make it great for beginners and people looking for fairly compact plants. Despite it only being a small portion of the parentage, influence of N. campanulata is strong in this cross, thus far with the rosettes staying small with fat, almost rounded leaves and pitchers that float just off the ends of the leaves, relatively small and pale green, hourglass-shaped, with a red-flushed interior. Other than having a thicker peristome and broad lid, they rather resemble campanulata pretty well thus far. and hopefully wil lstay that way with age, though any number of possibilities may come from the rest of the parent species.

    Available plants are newly rooted cuttings between approx. 2-4" in diameter.

    One of the faster growing clones of an odd cross, this plant looks a lot like a pure rafflesiana in many ways but tends to make slightly taller, hipped pitchers with a broader peristome and thicker ribs, and big frilly wings. Color is a heavily mottled blend of cream and deep reds, the peristome striped in similar shades, and upper pitchers are similarly colored but funnel shaped and only retain funky stunted remnants of the wings.

    Available plants are rooted cuttings with new growth between 4-8" in diameter.

    Grown from a batch of seeds from the ICPS seedbank years ago, I nicknamed this one "Fat Lips" for a while because the immature lower pitchers seem to have a tendency to produce particularly chunky peristomes; this holds over into uppers in the form of a notably rounded cherry red peristome on shapely hourglass-profile pitchers that are often liberally spotted or speckled red on a cream or light red background. A classic beginner's species, though tends to do better in slightly cooler conditions. Available plants are newly rooted cuttings with growth approx. 4-7" in diameter.

    A fast-growing but smaller-sized hybrid for those who don't have a lot of space or are just starting out, or just want something new that's easy to grow. Vines will flower at only 1-2 feet tall, and pitchers appear to max out at around 5 inches tall. Lower pitchers are stocky and cylindrical with a flaring peristome and pale pink and green colors overall; uppers are even paler green and more funnel-shaped.

    Available plants are rooted cuttings approx. 5" in diameter.

    A fast-growing but smaller-sized hybrid for those with little space, just starting out, or just want something easy to grow. Very similar to Clone A with pale green pitchers with red-tinted insides, but has slightly stockier pitchers with less hourglass shape and a more rounded peristome. Upper pitchers are very similar in appearance but more funnel-shaped.

    Available plants are rooted cuttings approx. 5" in diameter.

    A known male clone, and a great plant for both beginners and those that just want something fast-growing with fat pitchers. Traps average 5-6 inches tall and are nearly cylindrical, with a variable pale red pattern over light creamy or green background, and the peristome is thick and mildly scalloped with a creamy to peach-red color, sometimes appearing striped as it frequently mutates with missing ribs that lack color. Upper pitchers are similar but even paler and funnel-shaped. Unlike some of the other clones this isn't a particularly small vine, and will happily grow several feet in length with multiple basals popping up frequently.

    Available plants are rooted cuttings approx. 5-6" in diameter.

    Outcrossing can often result in notably more vigorous plants, and this is one good example. A standard line crossed with the recessive 'Albino' cultivar produces plants that look standard, but with very good growth easily reaching 6" or more in diameter and the potential, when allowed to bloom and set seeds, to produce both more typical plants as well as the white-flowered cultivar.

    Available plants are semi-mature to mature, between 3-5" in diameter.

    A true wide-leaved variety, this plant develops stems up to 5 inches or more over time and rosettes of erect to semi-erect leaves to at least 7 inches across, each leaf broad and strap-shaped with elongate ovoid lamina, colored green with yellowish or red blushing and crimson tentacles. I have yet to see this form flower, but should produce tall, hairy stalks up to a foot high with broad, bright pink flowers.

    Available plants are semi-mature, approx. between 2-4" across.

    Crossing two closely related species often results in hybrid vigor, and this is a great example; this hybrid produces flat rosettes that can be almost 4 inches in diameter, with roughly tapered broad leaves that can blush solid red in good light. Flower stalks can be enormous, 18+ inches tall with large, bright pink sterile blooms. A bit slow to bud and propagate itself, this is a great standalone plant in a pot.

    Available plants are semi-mature, between 2-3" in diameter on average.

    This backcross hybrid strongly resembles some of the more uncommon (in cultivation at least) forms of D. natalensis with longer, slender petioles than is typically known; plants average around 2" in diameter but can reach up to 3" across in some cases, with flat to slightly upright rosettes of spoon-shaped leaves that in good lighting can turn solid red. Flower stalks can be nearly 2 feet in length at times, bearing numerous small, light pink self-pollinating flowers. As they will often bud from old leaves or roots, this cross will frequently develop colonies over time.

    Available plants are approximately 1.5-2" across, semi-mature.
