    Radagast's Photo Thread

    I've been lurking around on the forums for a while and am glad to announce I finally got my first CP! I was at my local nursery the other day and was browsing their greenhouse when I discovered this pretty Nepenthes. They said they just got it in a few days ago and I POUNCED on it. Just keep in mind this is not the final place where I'm keeping it; I'm in the process of getting everything together for my grow rack. Any help identifying this particular species would be much appreciated!

    Nepenthes x ventrata which is a hybrid between Nepenthes ventricosa and Nepenthes alata.

    Most definitely a x ventrata, and a very nice one at that! Hopefully (and probably) it'll be the first CP of many

    Excellent, thanks a lot you guys. I'm feeling even more confident about my abilities to spot a good buy now that you seasoned pro's are complimenting my specimen! I certainly have plans to obtain many more CPs and establish a nice grow rack. I have a small collection of Tillandsia that I plan to incorporate into the grow rack so they'll pop up in my photos from time to time.

    Congrats on entering into the addiction. You won't regret it! Your N. x ventrata is a perfect starter plant--very fast-growing and very forgiving.

    Nice plant! My Nepenthes ventricosa x alata was the only CP of mine to survive after I went to college, and it's still alive after about a decade. You made a good choice for a first Nepenthes.
