Monkey Cups | Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary'

This carnivorous plant is quirky and unusual, with furry, blood-red boxing glove pitcher 'jugs' that collect water and trap insects.

Useful to know:

Origin

Southeast Asia.

Height/Growth

I won't exceed about 75cm growth (height and width).

Light

I prefer bright, indirect light but I will tolerate light shade. No direct sunlight, please.

Water

I like a very moist but free draining soil. I love living in a warm humid environment. Spray me occasionally too.

Temperature

I'm a tropical plant and need a warm enviornment: ideally above 14°C and between 22-25°C during the day.

Feeding

Mist me with very diluted fertiliser during Spring and Summer ... or give me a small insect to digest.

Grooming

I remain compact so I am easy to care for. Trim my stems to encourage side shoots.

Care

Although I can live for a long time, my pitchers will drop and make way for new ones periodically.

Toxicity

I can cause mild upset stomach if consumed by pets.

Fact

My pitchers are the colour of raw meat to attract flies! Click here to buy a beautiful Monkey Cups Hanging Plant.
