    its back

    had some issues bout 3 years ago and managed to loose some plants i really liked......after two years of looking someone i traded a cutting of the female veitchii highland striped to had a spare and i was able to get this plant back into my collection......

    newly opened pitcher


    eventually it will look like this

    yep its a female.......got the original as a 3 foot chunk of vine trimmed off a display plant at an orchid greenhouse in Minnesota......saw the dead flowers on the massive plant and had to have it......took me bugging the owner for an hour, buying $125 in orchids AND dishing out $75 for just the cutting to get it(my wife wasnt impressed) it flowered once in my care while rooting but in the stress of adjusting to my conditions and rooting it aborted which sucked as i had located some hamata pollen...

    swords can confirm on how large the mother plant was/is he has seen it in person aswell.....gonna be awhile till it flowers....my entire current basal is smaller than the pitcher from my original plant that i posted...
