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 we carry 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!

good plant August 26, 2017
Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
This plant is getting adapted to our texas heat and it's new environment.  It is taking it a little while, but it is putting out new pitchers already and  new leaves.  Seems to really like our high humidity in central texas.

Excellent N x tiveyi June 22, 2015
Reviewer: Bernard Friedrichsen from Moorpark, CA United States  
This Nepenthes hybrid arrived in great shape,is very healthy, and is much larger than I would have thought.  I was very happy with this plant and how it was packaged.  Trust me, I was like a kid opening a loved present on Christmas morning.  I will definitely, and have already, ordered more plants from Sarravenia Northwest.
