Nepenthes spectabilis x veitchii BE 3664


First introduced in July 2015 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is a selected clone of Borneo’s amazing giant N. spectabilis, sold under BE-3178 and the male parent is a selected clone of the Bareo form of N. veitchii sold under BE-3205. This item differs from BE-3636 released in Aug 2014 in that it is from a different grex of seeds using a different male parent.
Borneo Exotics is seeing a great deal of variability with this cross but all pitchers on mature plants they have seen to date (March 2020) are large and robust.
Random selection from very many clones out of microprop. Plants are in 4 inch pots with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

ropical 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.
