BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary' )
I originate in the tropical rain forests of South America.
I am an unusual hanging plant with furry, blood-red boxing glove pitchers growing from each leaf.
Overall spread up and down approx 75cm
I like a very moist but free draining soil. I love living in a warm humid environment. Spray me occasionally too. Light, but not full sun.
My pitchers are strange and beautiful fruit, I don't need flowers.
I remain compact so I am easy to care for. Trim my stems to encourage side shoots.
I am long living in the right conditions. The pitchers will eventually die back though, and new ones will come through.
Mist me with very dilute fertiliser during Spring and Summer... or give me a small insect to digest.
My pitchers are the colour of raw meat, to attract flies.
