    What's the story on that N. burbidgeae? Did you just get it or have you had it for a while? (It kinda looks like it's been recently repotted). I got one last summer and it's growing painfully slowly, and I'd love to hear the story of yours, especially if you've been growing it for a while. It looks pretty happy to me!


    Thanks,
    CJ

    P.S. This is kinda a common discussion, but, I sorta wanna say your N. alata is actually N. x 'Ventrata.' I do grow both, and yours definitely looks more like the latter.

    I've had it since last spring. It did just get repotted because as I was carrying it home from the NC State conservatory I tripped and the pot broke *smacks head* It does grow painfully slowly. It only had 3 leaves when I got it and it flushed in early summer and put out 3 new leaves and it inflated two pitcher but one aborted and the other is the one that you see in the pictures.

    I agree with Unstuck on the N. alata. It definitely looks like N. x ventrata, no ala on the front and the peristome does look a little wide.

    well i got it at a local garden center and i found out where they got it from, Deroose in Florida. I think they are just a wholesale grower, but when i searched their list of plants they said they grow N. 'Miranda' which it definitely is not and N. 'Alata' so I just assumed they meant it was some sort of alata hybrid. You guys are probably right.

    Yup the "Deroose alata" is a ventrata. I bought mine as a N. alata, too. We may be able to take cuttings of that monster N. alata at Meadowview. It's making another basal from what I can recall.
