Nepenthes (veitchii X maxima) X (Rokko X veitchii) is a complex hybrid involving lowlanders and highlanders. I got this plant from Tristan's as a rooted cutting but was an initial creation from Exotica Plants. I believe it should be grown as an intermediate but I'm growing it outdoors. I suspect that it could probably be grown as a lowlander as well. Often with complex hybrids they can be grown in a wide variety of conditions. Most hybrids using N. veitchii are showy. The ones I like best are the highland striped veitchiis. I'm not sure which N. veitchii was used in this hybrid since Exotica Plants has so many different varieties. I purchased this hybrid mainly because Exotica's complex crosses with N. veitchii are usually quite good. The overall plant resembles a N. veitchii in leaf structure and hairiness. I haven't read much about this hybrid and it hasn't turned up so far in the Nepenthes forums as to its vigor and color variations. Right now I'm acclimating it outdoors and will see how it adjusts to lower winter temperatures. Because of the N. maxima and N. veitchii in it, I think I should be able to adapt it to highland conditions.
