This has got to be one of EP's greatest hybrid of all time! The cross just enhances characteristics that make veitchii's so in demand! Check this pitcher out on still another seedling of EP's famous picks!
I love that striped one Rainforest! Just like the one on EP's peristome page. Gotta trade for that eventualy ! Just wish the one I have would recover from the beating mister sun gave it more quickly. I think a new leaf is finally beginning to emerge.

Matti, the tall plant is the same age as all my other eymae x veitchii. this one just decided to flower, then it began to elongate. My shorter stubby plants and this beanstalk are the same age. I've had them for about a year now. This tall plant is not the giant pitcher shown previously. The giant pitcher has a good leaf spread, but its no way near the height of this one.
While most of my plants are quite large, I do have a few that are still in a six inch pot in need of transplanting into a larger sized pot. These guys were some that were smaller or jumped a ride with my others from EP circa 2005. I still have many of my eymae x spectabilis and eymae x (steno x lowii) still in six inch pots to be repotted to bigger brighter locations. The few that have been repotted have quickly caught up and soon I'll be posting some awesome pics of these beauties!
Nate, is your plant recovering from real sun burnt leaves? Mine had them and I wasn't sure if they could withstand the heat, but now they do and it seems its a cyclic thing. Now with the sun not as intense, they're really fine, then when the heat of summer comes around, they'll get burned and brown but by winter time, recovered completely and look as good as these photos shows. if you look real closely though, you'll see some lower semi-hidden leaves that look real bad!

OK Matti, Here are the pics. similar to the one previously posted.
This is a close up of the basals. Its interesting to note that these basals are much larger than the size these monsters started out to be about a year ago.
An upper pitcher. Its interesting to note that the upper has an orange peristome while the lowers are solid green.
here's one that doesn't know what it wants to be.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
