One plant is adequate, two plants are superior, and three plants are exceptional!

Have you ever been shopping for houseplants and thought to yourself, "My friend Frank would love this plant!" As they say, "sharing is caring". Therefore, we decided to create a "mini box" plant series.

Our 2" plants are meant for sharing with friends, family, and significant others!

This specific mini box we decide to call "Thirsty Thursday". It includes three counts of Nepenthes Rebecca, each in 2"mini pots.

Why "Thirsty Thursday"? 

Pitcher plants use pretty color patterns, scent and nectar to lure their prey into their deathtraps. Once inside, their victims discover that the pitcher walls, which are sometimes lined with downward pointing “teeth,” are too slippery for them to climb back out to freedom.

Nepenthes x Rebecca Soper, is a medium size, robust growing carnivorous tropical pitcher plant with dark deep purple pitchers. The inner tube is speckled red. It is a cross between N. ventricosa and N. gracillima. It is quite adaptable, heat and cold tolerant and does well in a window. It is quite good at catching large insects, such as: stink bugs, wasps and yellow jackets.  It is a great house plant, that can be grown outdoors in the warm weather with a minimal transition period. It is a good Nepenthes for beginners.

Light: Nepenthes love bright spots without draft, warm temperatures all year round and very high humidity. Direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided, as it could burn the mostly thin-walled pitchers or at least damage them significantly.

Watering: Given their warm and humid tropical origin, moisture is the most important factor in the cultivation of these plants. The influence of radiators and air conditioning quickly dry the room out, especially during the cold season, which is why watering as well as humidity have to be adjusted accordingly.

  • Water regularly during periods of growth, at least twice a week
  • Always pour water into the saucer, not into the substrate
  • Refill only when the water has been used up completely
  • Alternatively, the root ball can be dipped into water that has room temperature for a moment
  • Only water with lime-free water, ideally with rainwater
  • Avoid waterlogging by all means
  • The plants should be without water
  • Remove entirely withered pitchers
  • Spray regularly with lime-free water (not too cold!) for ideal humidity
