Nepenthes Tiveyi, from Leilani

This is a recently acquired selection of Nepenthes Tiveyi, a rooted cutting from Leilani Nepenthes. This pitcher has only just opened two days ago and will color up quite a bit with age, the spots on the body darkening to more of a red-brown and the peristome will deepen to a bronze hue. For now though, I am enjoying the surreal translucent, sugary coloring of this newborn confection.

N. Tiveyi is a hybrid between N. maxima and N. veitchii and is a very easy hybrid to grow, adaptable to a wide range of climate conditions.
