Nepenthes (veitchii x lowii) x robcantleyi BE 3841


Nepenthes (veitchii x lowii) x robcantleyi BE 3841 was introduced by Borneo Exotics in May 2018. The female parent, N. veitchii x lowii, is a remarkable robust plant, which produces huge pitchers, which have even caught small rats in Borneo Exotic’s nurseries, probably because it exudes copious amounts of nectar from the underside of the lid. As all the component species are large, expect this cross to produce exceptionally large pitchers. Another interesting point is that Borneo Exotics is already seeing nectar exudate, even on juvenile plants. The plants are from a very large number of clones out of microprop.

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.
