    another Lowe's rescue Nepenthes...

    This is a Lowe's rescue Nepenthes. Variety unknown.

    It has but a single pitcher and it's only an inch long right now.

    This should be an easy ID for all you Nepenthes-maniacs out there...

    Need to know if it's a highland or a lowland, so I have an idea as how to treat it.

    Thanks for the help!

    Looks like Judith finn.
    Its intermediate.
    though some pics of the whole plant may contribute to a more accurate identification.

    Good point.

    It's rather a "floppy" plant. Leaves are like Basset hound ears...

    the leaves shouldn't be too floppy, but odds are it is going through some shock from being in the cube for an while. Odd's are its just another Nepenthes 'ventrata' an alta x ventricosa, really common.

    Hard to tell till it gets a little bigger.

    It is easier to ID neps when they are bigger.

    N. ventrata lower pitchers do have small wings.

    Looking at the pitcher shape I might suggest it is a nepenthes coccinea?

    It also looked sorta like N. x 'Judith Finn' to me at first glance, and by seeing the small hairs that outline the leaves in the second pic, it reminded me a lot of my N. x 'Judith Finn', because it has these same hairs, while my N. x ventrata does not.

    Does Lowes ever sell N sanguinea? I have a nep that looked enough like my little sanguinea that I assumed that that was what it was. Now I'm not so sure....
