General Description
Contrary to its name, this clone of Whisper can go from sublime to in-your-face shouting. Subtle shadings are usually seen when the plant is grown in slightly milder light conditions (first photo). In very bright conditions, the peristome will be solid orange-red against a creamy orange pitcher (second photo).

We got our mother plant from Sam Estes of Leilani Nepenthes Nursery many years ago. The actual hybrid is Nepenthes (veitchii x x tiveyi) x (eymae x veitchii). This plant is a robust grower and adapts well as a houseplant.

Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 4-inch pot. All plants are established rooted cuttings that were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.
