Nepenthes veitchii BE 4033


Nepenthes veitchii Bario highland – grex 2 – 10 BE 4033 was first introduced in Oct 2020 by Borneo Exotics, from seed harvested in Oct 2016. This is the second grex they have created, the first being BE-3734 which was introduced in Dec 2016 and used different parent plants.

This item is a random selection from hundreds of different clones, being a mixture obtained from an entire single seed head. It was created in Borneo’s nurseries from mother plants which themselves are selected clones from seed-raised individuals. Both male and female parents are of the Bareo form of the species. The female parent is the squat pure-gold form, with BE collection ID# 0225. The male parent has a gold peristome with red stripes – which is most unusual – and has BE collection ID# 0210.

Plants are potted in 4 inch pots with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite.

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.
