    My N. hirsuta x veitchii has gone nuts in my windowsill. This latest pitcher is almost 9" from the bottom to the base of the lid. It's my biggest nepenthes picther to date by far. And what's better, there's a huge vine going five feet up the window that is producing upper pitchers in droves, and are going to be even bigger than this guy:


    Here's a pic of the lower portion, and obviously, it lives with a red ventricosa:


    I hoped the summer would bring good growth for these plants, and it has delivered!

    Yes, very cool looking pitcher and healthy looking plants.

    I just received my first pure N. hirsuta this week and can really see that half of the parentage in yours.

    ooh that's very intersting! i love it!!

    do you know if the father veitchii was a lowland or highland clone? i'm assuming it was a highland because the ventricosa isn't a lowlander.

    Wow, that looks awesome! I really like the combination of plants you have there, plus the pot looks really cool.
