Nepenthes rajah x (veitchii x platychila) Seed grown BE 4017


The female parent is one of the four clones of Nepenthes rajah, sold under BE-3152 and originating with Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The male parent is the Borneo Exotics’ cross between Nepenthes veitchii and Nepenthes platychila selected from those sold under BE-3213.
This cross is already showing great variability as would be expected of a compound hybrid. Although still very juvenile, many plants shown here have peltate leaves, with some being very peltate and others slightly so or not at all.

All different individuals from seed. Plants are potted in a 4 inch pot, filled with long fiber sphagnum moss plus perlite.

Climate: Highland

Tropical Pitcher Plant (Nepenthes sp.) Care

  • Best to use only pure water – rainwater, distilled water or RO water. Be careful of bottled water as some contain salt which will kill your Tropical Pitcher plant
  • Keep a small amount of pure water in each trap. Mist plants regularly.
  • Keep soil moist; but well drained at all times. Do Not let your Nepenthes sit in water
  • Nepenthes like partial sunny location. They grow well on windowsills or under fluorescent lights in a terrarium.
  • Soil is mixture 3 parts long fiber sphagnum with 1 part perlite or 1 part fine orchid bark.
  • Fertilize Nepenthes with foliar fertilizer. ¼ tsp of Maxsea per gallon of water, 2 times a month
  • Nepenthes like to grow warm: above 50 degrees. Ideal is 65 to 80 degrees with high humidity.

Note: Pitchers will change in color and shape as they mature. Often there are also several different clones in our mix, so the pitchers may vary slightly for this reason as well.
