    Mystery Nep-New Photos

    This is the same plant in the "pitcherless Nep" thread.

    The leaves have a narrow base that then broadens to its full width. Most of my other neps immediately begin to broaden so I am able to eliminate N sanguinea, ventricosa, and bicalcarata. They do resemble my N raffelsiana however. The leaves are not super-long but seem more "stubby".

    Definitely not N. bicalcarata, and most likely not a N. sanguinea, although I suppose that depends where you bought it from. I'm going with N. x ventrata, N. ventricosa, or N. 'Miranda'. Although, for some reason, I don't have strong feelings that it's N. ventricosa. Seems to have too long leaves, and looks too prolific.

    EDIT: Heh, I read your post wrong. Just ignore the stuff about the N. ventricosa and N. bicalcarata stuff. In that case, I'm just going for N. 'Miranda' and N. x ventrata. Doesn't look like N. rafflesiana.

    he over-dosed this nep on fertilizers... am i right? that would make leaves huge if it was high(ish) in nitrogen. i would also say ventricosa or ventrata

    My ventricosas & ventratas all have slender, almost lancet-like leaves, not broad paddles like this one. Judging from the prolific growth and the leaf shape, I'd say x miranda. My x miranda looks quite like that one.

    I've been eyeing some mirandas at another garden center and they don't look anything like this one. Maybe they're older, but the leaves are much much larger and darker and seem to have a different texture.

    I've gladly crossed ventricosa off of the list because of the leaf shape. I guess I'll just have to wait.

    Just curiously, what would your second guesses be?

    it does look like a vining N. x Miranda, but the tendrils are usually thicker and the leaves aren't that far appart. About how big are the leaves?

    Yes...definitely 'Miranda'. No way would you be lucky enough to readily get one of those other species that large.
