Nepenthes Rokko X (veitchii X fusca) is an Exotica Plants hybrid. They list this hybrid as a highlander that I purchased from Cook's Carnivorous Plants a few years ago. I wasn't looking for this hybrid in particular. Dean told me he had a cutting so I bought it. Originally it was in full sun and was suffering. It never really did anything until now. I moved it to a shadier location and it is beginning to put out bigger pitchers. The plant is a little hairy from the N. veitchii and the pitcher has a lot of  N. fusca in it. As it gets larger, the pitchers may change in the vining stage. It has been a bit of a slow grower but then again, I tortured it a bit outdoors. I haven't seen this hybrid around much. The reason is that once the seed grown plants Exotica produces are gone, only rooted cuttings appear. My guess is that this hybrid was made a few years ago so that's why I haven't seen much of it. Also, photos of grower's plants appear in the forums from time to time although I haven't seen much of this hybrid.
