I personally hold Veitchii in high regard for its stunning growth when grown well. I'd love to see someone shove a thick long vertically in a collection of veitchii's and wait for them to grow up the log. I think geoff (EP) is either trying, or tried this.

Manny, just one of the problems when you leave watering to a drip spiggot and then the wind blows it out. While the green leafy plant looks good, down below the pot dries as nothnig is evident that meanwhile the pot dries each day, then without warning, the plant wilts and then just browns and dies. This is just a simple N. gracilis that died for no reason but lack of water! This is one obstacle I am still trying to fix in regards to winds that can whip a weighted water tube out of its pot without any warning. Each plant is individually watered and when done so, the roots get some water and the plant continues to maintain itself.
I have had some great rare stuff die for no reason than just due to lack of water. This is why hand watering also comes in handy!
Well, if that isn't a case of the pot calling the kettle black....
It does look like spathulata x veitchii H/L striped to me too. Especially the way the lower part of the peristome curves in and the rest maintains a flared appearance. It would be good to compare other parts of the plant too.
I was under the impression that Mike's plant has been around for quite a while. How recent is your plant Sam?

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.
