BE4033 N.veitchii 'Bario Highland' - grex # 2
This species is a top favorite for many growers.Endemic to the island of Borneo where it usually grows as an epiphyte, it produces magnificent pitchers, with hugely flared peristomes. Pitcher bodies have a wonderful velvety texture and peristomes vary a great deal in color - ranging from pink, through gold, to deep brown. Sometimes peristomes are a single color, and others can be candy-striped. There are endless variations that often don't become fully apparent until plants mature.This item is a random selection from hundreds of different clones, being a mixture obtained from an entire seed head. It was created in our nurseries from mother plants, which themselves are selected clones from seed-raised individuals. Both male and female parents are of the Bare form of the species.As might be expected, the plants we are seeing are highly variable. Peristome colouration ranges from pure gold to candy striped and pitcher bodies vary from gold to pink, with all sorts of variations in between. Most pitchers are squat but some are not.The huge number of clones involved in this cross makes this item particularly interesting, since it's unlikely that two identical individuals will be present in any particular shipment. This item differs from BE-3734 in that both sets of parent plants are different clones and have different appearances.
First introduced in Oct 2020 from seed harvested in Oct 2016. This is the second grex we have created, the first being BE-3734 which was introduced in Dec 2016 using different parent plants
Note: The plants under this item are all resulting from a seed harvest taken from one female seed head, which we refer to as a 'grex. In this case we have called it 'grex # 2'.
