    The Nep looks like N. sanguinea to me, and the Ping looks like the one I have...the one I've never been able to identify!

    I doubt sanguinea would turn up in a generic nursery. Odds are the Nep is ventrata and the Ping is the false 'Weser' as both are mass market TC clones.

    Those latter pics are definitly ventrata.

    The first Nep has very ventrata-like leaves. That is what I am making my ID on. That and the assumption that it is one of the major TC clones of which ventrata is them ost common. The pitchers are still quite immature so they are not the best for ID purposes.

    Here is the first successful Nep I picked up from Lowes, 2.5 years ago. It has been consistently identified as being an N. sangunea.:



    Looking at my own collection, its leaf shape most closely resembles that of a P. 'John Rizzi'.



    From what I have seen and read, N. ventrata can vary with its redness. Here's one I got from elgecko:

    UNtil the Pinguicula flowers you won't know for sure, even then some of them are very close. I'd label it as:
    Pinguicula (Unkown ?moranensis? Hybrid)

    Agristarts has been selling N. sanguinea and N. madagascarensis from TC for the past couple years.

    Jim I would your little Nep is N. sangiunea, fudogs plant is still to young to ID.
