    Nepenthes Alata

    I have several 6"-8" wide rooted Nepenthes Alata plants. They all have nice pitchers on them and are in great health. The colors on these are super variable with some being almost all red while others are mostly green. Grown in my greenhouse in central FL. I am interested in most if not all carnivorous plants. If you are interested please let me know as we can for sure make it happen. I am not looking for a crazy amount of stuff in trade, I'd rather help someone's collection than say no! Thanks In advance, you're awesome!!

    Do you have pics? Actual N. alata is rather rare in cultivation, you likely have the commonly mislabeled N. x ventrata or possibly graciliflora.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Photos would be useful, I agree. Its likely you have N. Ventrata, which is often sold by "sideline" merchants as N. alata, unfortunately.

    Even if you have 100% certainty they are N. alata posting pics is still a good idea to show the different pigmentation of the plants you're offering.
