Description

Nepenthes (veitchii x lowii) x robcantleyi | Borneo Exotics | BE-3841 

Nepenthes (veitchii x lowii) x robcantleyi – First introduced May 2018. The female parent, N. veitchii x lowii, is a remarkable robust plant, which produces huge pitchers, which have even caught small rats at Borneo Exotics’ 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 has already started seeing nectar exudate, even on juvenile plants.

These specimens are well hardened-off clones from Borneo Exotics. They are medium-sized, about 3-5″ across. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.

This plant prefers intermediate to highland conditions, which means that it should be kept around 73-83°F during the day and 53-63°F at night with a very high relative humidity.

Nepenthes as a genus prefer high humidity, at least 75% RH for most species. In addition, they should be watered with distilled water, rainwater or reverse osmosis water rather than tap or well water. Fertilizing Nepenthes should only be done rarely, and with extreme care.
