Nepenthes rafflesiana X N. veitchii is a hybrid between two lowlander parents. The original Victorian cross was referred to as N. X dicksoniana. I haven't heard of anyone who has a plant from the original Victorian hybrid between these two species. Both species are readily available so it's no surprise remakes of this cross are available. I'm currently growing it as a windowsill plant and it seems to be doing alright. The leaves spotted up with red dots from the increased sunlight but didn't seem to harm the plant. The pitchers also have lasted quite a while compared to other Nepenthes I grow on windowsills. Overall I'm not too good at growing lowlanders as houseplants compared to my success with highlanders outdoors. I have had success getting both individual species parents to pitcher indoors as houseplants so maybe this hybrid will do well too. If grown in typical lowland conditions, I anticipate this hybrid to be an easy grower that gets fairly large. Sunbelle Exotics told me that this plant is really beautiful so that's why I decided to try it as a windowsill specimen.
