"The next success was a superb cross from Nepenthes veitchii and N. curtisii, N. x tiveyi, named in compliment to the raiser. N. veitchii is one of the grandest Pitcher-plants in cultivation, remarkable for hairy pitchers and a curious gill-like peristome, and many of the best characteristics have been imparted to the hybrid, the most conspicuous the broad rim round the mouth, richly coloured a deep mahogany-red, which occasional transverse bars of a deeper shade. The pitchers, larger than those of N. veitchii, have much the same form, but are on finer lines."
