General Description
This is Jeff's favorite hybrid. A spectacular creation from the Victorian age of Nepenthes horticulture, N. x tiveyi ("tivvey-ai") is a cross between two highland species, N. maxima x veitchii. The clone Red Queen originated from Exotica Plants in Australia and has proven to be an absolute gem. It produces one of the most spectacular pitchers we've ever seen. The lower traps are brightly colored with orange and red blotches, and the peristome is boldly striped orange, red, and yellow. We've had the best success with it on our kitchen windowsill, where it has adapted well as a houseplant!

5 of 5 Amazing Plant! October 19, 2019
Reviewer: Ron from Beverly Hills, CA United States  
The Nepenthes x tiveyi arrived well packaged, strong & healthy, and is a beautiful plant with incredible pitchers. It came with one pitcher fully mature already but a month later already started growing 2 more. This may be my new favorite plant in my entire carnivorous plant collection so it was well worth the price imho!

5 of 5 In a months time... September 8, 2019
Reviewer: Lowell Tanquary from Eugene , OR United States  
Originally from California where I grew a large collection of exotics I felt that an increase of light would produce better results. The plant now has vigorous growth with new leaf formation and pitchers beginning to form and the original pitcher has brilliant color. The trick will be maintaining the light through the winter months this far north during the winter months in the Pacific Northwest where the sun rarely shows. I'll research growing lights and enclosed controlled environment furniture cases for winter survival.

3 of 5 slow & easy July 29, 2019
Reviewer: Brent from Bethlehem, PA United States  
It is growing slow but beautifully. Took a little time to adjust to my garden window but now that it has, one of the two tendrils has produced a pitcher and a new one has developed.
