Description
 
Nepenthes burkei is an attractive and forgiving plant, making it an excellent choice for a beginning grower. Nepenthes burkei produces green, hour-glass shaped pitchers with red blotches and dark red, flared peristomes. Nepenthes burkei has historically been confused with its very similar and far more common relative Nepenthes ventricosa, and has only recently entered mainstream cultivation.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.

Great shopping and buying experience April 25, 2017
Reviewer: Kevin Griffin from Whitmore Lake, MI United States  
I have been very impressed with the whole experience from shopping to receiving my plant. I love that I not only get plant care instructions, but the pot and growing medium. It makes it so much easier to establish my plant in my growing area. I don't have to worry about having the supplies with me when my plant arrives.

I recommend this vendor to everyone who asks me where to buy carnivorous plants online.
