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.
