Nepenthes in culture VI

Nepenthes veitchii - types



Some Nepenthes-species are wide spreaded in Borneo or SE-Asia (f.e. N.mirabilis, N.ampullaria, N.rafflesiana). Some you can find only in Borneo (N.veitchii, N.lowii) or the Philipines or Sulawsi and some are located only on one montain (endemic - f.e. N.rajah, N. trusmadiensis).

These species, which are spreaded only in a region of an island sometimes are forming different types here f.e. Nepenthes veitchii.
