    Mystery Ping

    got this guy from a local nursery for $2. its a RC. the parent plant was approximately 3" across, this one is about 1".

    Any ideas?

    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Did the parent have a bloom on it by chance??

    It is difficult to tell most Pings by just their foliage. I agree that it does look sort of agnata-like but that is not saying much because I can name a dozen plants in my collection that look agnata-like but are definitly not agnata.

    I am going to guess (and bear in mind that it is just a guess) that what you have is probably a P. 'Tina'. This has hit the mass market bracket recently and has been turing up everywhere. And it looks agnata-like to boot.
