Description
 
Nepenthes bongso produces large, tubby pitchers with dark, widely flared peristomes. The pitchers of Nepenthes bongso vary in color, however this particular clone produces deep red or purple pitchers, even when the plant is young. The name "Bongso" refers to the Indonesian legend of Putri Bungsu (youngest daughter,) who is the spirit guardian of Mount Marapi.

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.
