WIKI: Nepenthes veitchii, or Veitch's Pitcher-Plant is a Nepenthes species from the island of Borneo. The plant is widespread in north-western Borneo and can also be found in parts of Kalimantan. N. veitchii usually grows as an epiphyte, though the form from Bario seems to be strictly terrestrial in nature and has not been observed to climb trees.
