This is a wonderfully colored and patterned hybrid, and a good grower as well. Adult pitchers are cylindrical and resemble the Nepenthes boschiana parent in this regard. But we expect the Nepenthes veitchii parent to lend its wide and wonderfully candy-striped peristome to the mix. Should have excellent hybrid vigor too! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers.
