Nepenthes veitchii x (burbidgeae x edwardsiana) BE 4053


The female parent is a lowland N. veitchii, originating from a clone donated in-vitro by a Germain friend in the 1990s. The exact location of the parent plant is not known, but it is suspected to be from the Mr Legaspi region of Mindanao. It bears BE  Collection ID# 0242. The male parent is the lovely cross N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana and is of the same clone as used in other BE crosses.

All three parent species can be found in the vicinity of Mt. Kinabalu in Sabah, so it’s almost certain that at some point in the past several million years, that this cross existed naturally in the wild. Colors range from a beautiful lilac, to bronze or orange. The peristome may be flared, others may be more rolled back as the mature.

Since one parent is lowland and the other highland, BE has classified this item cross as ‘intermediate’ and expect it will grow in a wide range of temperatures. The plants are a random selection from many different clones out of microprop.

Plants are grown in long fiber sphagnum moss with perlite, in 3.5 pots. Plants are amazing as they mature!

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: Intermediate conditions: above 65 degrees. Ideal is 75 to 85 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.
