    leaf structure says Ventrata. not ventricosa. ventricosa leaves are more strap like. just to make an extra clarification. even if its not ventratra and is ventricosa....its not gonna die!

    Looks like it could also be N. Madagascariensis.
    Good Luck ID'ing your plant,

    Just a note: The red pitcher is in fact a new young pitcher, and they turn greener when they get older, but are beginning to mantain the red pigmentation.
    Now my next question-is it an N.Ventrata, or some form of N.Alata. I can't tell, but from photo evidenc eboth N.Ventrata and N.Alata resemble this plant, is there any key feature for either plant?

    Nein. Madagascariensis is much different.

    kath,
    Personally, I think it looks like ventrata, but the wings being so pronounced on more mature pitchers (pic 4) makes me wanna say ventrata x alata just to be safe. Chances are that it is just a ventrata though. Def not a pure alata.

    There are many different forms of alata (blame the taxonomists) and it depends on which form you're talking about. Alata tends to have wings, but in the "boschiana mimic" form, they are more reduced in comparison to other alata forms. Alata comes in a variety of shapes and colors, while ventrata is (almost) always pink/red/green (some oranges in F2 versions), has a more ventricosa-like peristome, and is more ventricose than alata.

    wow this is really useful I have a similar looking plant sold to me as N alata. I think its really hard to get Nepenthes in New Zealand so maybe the plants here are all inbreeds?
