Nepenthes rajah x veitchii (TC) Potted
A cross like this really is a fantasy come to life. Although, rajah is one of the biggest and most spectacular of all Nepenthes, it is also one of the slowest. It can take decades to get one to flowering size and so this hybrid truly is an amazing horticultural achievement. It’s hard to imagine a better plant to cross it with than veitchii too. We expect this cross to have the huge pitchers of rajah combined with flared striped peristome of veitchii without the long wait for maturity. A must have for any collection.
