Nepenthes veitchii x N. boschiana is a hybrid I've only seen available from the Nepenthes Nursery in Germany. I don't know if the N. veitchii parent was a highlander or lowlander.  I bought this plant because I've never seen anything crossed with N. boschiana available until recently. It was a decent size 3 which was surprising since most of the Nepenthes Nursery's plants are size 2s. They've been offering larger plants lately. I potted it up and put it outdoors with my other highlanders and it adjusted fine. There wasn't any transplant shock or leaf curl due to my growing conditions. This was somewhat shocking since the leaves appeared "papery" and thin. I expected some leaf damage, but that never happened. It taken some time but it has finally settled in and has adjusted to my outdoor growing conditions. The plant is still relatively small but should increase in size in the next few years. 


Cultivation: probably easy to moderate in typical greenhouse conditions, slower grower to establish in highland conditions
Market availability: size 3; limited to the Nepenthes Nursery so far
Species variability: possible differences if seed grown, not many if from tissue culture
$ / size: inexpensive to moderate $20.00 and up
Cuttings: none available for trade
Sex: unknown
