    can we get a size reference to the larger pitchers? ventrata pitchers don't have wings after a certain size... I am lowering my certainty to 40%, lol.

    Don't forget that a hybrid (unless cloned) will not be the same as the same hybrid with different plants. You could have two different hybrids of ventrata.

    IMHO -- definitely not a ventrata -- ventrat have no wings. Aslo the peristome seems to be fairly significant -- also not typical of an ventrata. An Alata perhaps ?

    Alrighty, here are some more pics. On the last one, is that mold or scale or something else..its only on the underside of the leaves near the base of the plant.







    Thanks again for all your help

    Black soot mold on the nectar glands. You can wipe it off with a damp papertowel if you like.

    I am almost certain the plant is N. Ventrata. Small pitchers you show there with the ruler usually do have wings, even N. Ventrata
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    N. x ventrata (ventricosa x alata) all the way.
