New introduction to cultivation for April 2021! Very few plants are available at the time of launch.
History: First introduced through the wholesale auctions in April 2021.
Description: The female parent is a lowland N. veitchii, originating from a clone donated in-vitro by a Germain friend in the 1990s. The exact location of the parent plant is not known, but it is suspected to be from the Mr Legaspi region of Mindanao. It bears our Collection ID# 0242. The male parent is the lovely cross N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana and is of the same clone as used in our other crosses.
We love making hybrids that are either recorded from the wild as natural hybrids or will have probably existed as natural hybrids at some point in the past. This is a good example of the latter, because all three parent species can be found in the vicinity of Mt. Kinabalu in Sabah, so it’s almost certain that at some point in the past several million years that this cross existed in the wild.
In the plants we have raised at the time of writing (April 2021), we are seeing two different colour variations; the photos here illustrate this. Some are an unusual and very beautiful lilac, which is sometimes seem in juvenile pitchers of Nepenthes (e.g. some juvenile N. veitchii pitchers are lilac but that fades as the pitchers mature). However, pitchers on these plants remain that colour, even as the pitchers mature. The first four photos of the series show pitchers which are on the same plant. The one with the more flared peristome is newly opened, but the other one with the more rolled back peristome is mature and as you can see, the colour remains similar. Some other plants we are seeing have a different colouration with a bronze peristome as the next two photos in the series show. The last four photos in the series are of a tray of juvenile plants and show the approximate proportions of the different colouration that can be expected in a batch of plants shipped.
Since one parent is lowland and the other highland, we have classified this item as ‘intermediate’ and expect it will grow in a wide range of temperatures.
The photos shown here are representative and may not be identical to plants shipped.
Source: Random selection from a very large number of different clones out of microprop.
