Nepenthes (veitchii x mira) x (burbidgeae x edwardsiana) BE 3992


First introduced Nov 2019 by Borneo Exotics. The female parent is a selected seed-grown Nepenthes veitchii x mira with collection ID 1867 and the male parent is our unique clone of Nepenthes burbidgeae x edwardsiana with collection IN 0073.

This cross is expected to be very variable and potentially hugely spectacular. The clones BE has observed at the time of launch are all colorful, even when very juvenile.

Plants are medium size and 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.
