We are excited to release the very own horticultural grex of our favorite species, veitchii! Nepenthes veitchii is a highly variable species with the Bario/Bareo forms being the most stunning. This grex was created right here in-house with two prime veitchii parents. The male parent is our famous 'Candy Dreams clone. It produces large, squat pitchers with a red body and a huge striped peristome! The female is squat and striped but lacks body color. We find that two pure Bario forms crossed together can have a lot of variability amongst the progeny. Since both parents are squat, we do expect all of the offspring to be as well. We are certain this will be one of the best veitchii grexes in cultivation to date! Veitchii tends to get its best color in cooler temperatures.

This plant prefers intermediate/highland conditions. It can be kept between 75-84F in the day and would benefit from nights in the '60s for best color. Nepenthes can acclimate to lower humidity levels, although the best results will be seen with a relative humidity range between 75-80%. Bright, indirect light, and pure water.
