    New Arrivals and an Unexpected Find

    I was excited to receive two Nepenthes in the mail today. They are quite petite, but I still love them.

    N. tentaculata and N. glabrata, respectively:

    I was plenty satisfied already, but I had planned to visit a local nursery in search of a pure source of perlite and peat moss. While I was there I took a look around and was surprised to find some nice little pots of cape sundews for only $7. I counted up the plants and there seem to be at least 9 separate growth points in mine. It's practically overflowing the pot! An awesome find, and it feels so good not to have to pay shipping for once. I even managed to get it home with the dew intact

    Truly, it's been a great day for plants.

    For some reason, I don't think that's a glabrata by the leaf shape, but I guess we'll have to find out when it pitchers.

    Hmm...The leaves look right to me--long and slender, just like others I've seen. It is a VERY small plant at this point (that's a 3 inch pot), and the picture doesn't really do it justice. However, I bought it from a professional online seller whom I trust, and I find it hard to believe that it's anything different than what it was marked as.

    That said, I suppose a mix up could have been possible.

    Perhaps some better pictures would help...

    Based on these, does it definitely not look like glabrata?

    i can tell the difference already with those seedlings zero, already showing the perfect straight narrow leaves, the blade of the leaf also extends down a little ways on the tendril, your leaves in my opinion remind me much more strongly of talangensis but its possible that its just a glabrata that wasnt too happy with its conditions.....
    Here is what my plant looked when it was younger (in a 3 1/2" pot, same pot it is still in)
