    Here ya go bud.. The plants miss you too

    The N. veitchii you wanted to see



    For anyone that is curious...

    This is a Malesiana Bareo highlands clone. Uh I didnt take measurements. It is in one of them 12"? square pond baskets so I guess the plant is about 20" across with the pitcher in the photo about 9" tall

    T
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Hi Tony:

    Very interesting colour. I was under the false impression that only the lowland veitchii plants had that golden/brown peristome and the highlanders had the striped peristome. If i am not mistaken the Bareo from MT (according to Chien's photo has a striped peristome. Could this be genetic variability within a population of plants?

    Hi Gus,

    I can't say too much about the Bareo plants from Malesiana as I didn't end up keeping any and most sold while still fairly small. From past experience Malesiana can have many different clones in their 'mix'. N. veitchii however takes it's sweet time to show it's true colors. The plants really need to be quite mature and a large size to give their best show.

    I suspect that N. veitchii is just plain variable throughout it's range. I normally think of the lowland form as having a yellow/green pitcher and peristome while the highland is normally a gold color with bronzy overtones. There are examples though within cultivation of pink pitchers, brown peristomes, striped peristomes and every combination inbetween, in both lowland and highland forms. One thing to consider too is when the photo was taken. N. veitchii pitchers can change drastically from when the pitcher first opens to when it finally dries up from old age.

    For reasons too implausible to go into, I never really liked veitchiis.

    But this one is one beautiful Nepenthes pitcher. I want it. (NINE INCHES TALL? You SURE?)
