Nepenthes bellii is a diminutive species, which has attractive pitchers around 8 cm in height. Rosette pitchers are slender in appearance, but as the plant matures, they become squat and fat. The pitcher morphology is like a tiny N merrilliana, which it is closely related to.

The fine vine scrambles across the ground and will climb any vegetation it encounters.
