A stunning and famed plant, the black tubed S. alatas are beautiful. They start veined, then turn red (as per the photo), and finally turn a black colour later in the summer if the light levels are high enough.

SOLD OUT FOR 2018.

A simply stunning plant, which develops a deep olive green exterior, and blue-maroon throat. The top of the lids turns almost brown. Certainly one of the most beautiful of the alatas.

We are the first nursery in the UK to offer this exceptionally rare plant. For a number of years I had the only specimen of this slow growing anthocyanin free plant in Europe, and It's taken a number of years to have a few small plants to offer. It reaches around 15 inches in height, and wears a fuzzy coat of pubescence, making the pitchers feel like green felt. These are young divisions, expect 6-8 inches in height in their first year. Their price reflects their rarity.
