Carnivorous Pitcher Plant Hybrid – Exotica Plants
This is a Nepenthes veitchii x burbidgeae, it is a carnivorous pitcher plant hybrid bred by Exotica Plants in Australia. While this plant won’t be for sale this weekend, we will have new items on our website for Saturday January 14th at 7pm EDT. We will also have nice plants available on eBay for Sunday January 15th at 9pm EDT.
I like this green form of Nepenthes ‘Caesarion’ (N. (merrilliana x truncata) x veitchii) it’s an easy grower under intermediate to lowland conditions. We’ve even been relatively successful growing this grex under highland conditions as well.
Here is an update on the seed grown Nepenthes ‘new species’ from Doorman’s Top in Papua New Guinea. This species likes it very cool at night–about 49 degrees Fahrenheit, and days in the low to mid 70’s. We will have these for sale hopefully by the fall of 2017.
