They are stiffly erect with a very slight outward curve, and are completely hairless on the outer surface. The upper 1/3 of the pitcher gradually enlarges and bears a slightly arching hood . The opening of the mouth can be up to 3 cm (1.25 inches) wide. The hood is 3-4 cm (1-1.5 inches) long and 5-6 cm (2-2.5 inches) wide with a distinct ruffle along the edge, reminiscent of the S. leucophylla parent. The modest size of the pitchers comes from the S. rubra parent. The small red flowers are also very much like S. rubra. Characteristic of the S. psittacina parent, the back of the hood and upper pitcher have prominent irregular white spots, and the pitcher's interior is profusely lined with long hairs to 2 mm long.
