    Nope -- not a N. x ventrata . Even if small ventrata pitchers have wings (I have never seen them on mine) There is a larger pitcher in the last picture that has prominent wings. Also -- that same pitcher does not exhibit the typical vase shape a ventrata pitcher has. Compare this vetrata pitcher with the large one in the last photo -- I see no similarites -- OK they are both Nepenthes -- but other than that .......

    There are lots of similarities. Of course you are only seeing half a pitcher in the other photos but look at the size. They at most would be a couple inches tall if the whole pitcher was there. That is considerably smaller than the pitchers you have there. The plant itself is unmistakeably N. ventrata. Give it some time to make some large mature pitchers and I think you will find it matches yours exactly, pitchers as well as leaves.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Sorry Tony, I am still not seeing this as a ventrata

    Looking at this picture, the pitcher in the middle does indeed look something like a ventrata pitcher if we ignore the wings. The other two do not.

    The pitcher I was looking at is the larger one in the lower right hand corner. Even if that is only a four inch pot (I am thinking more likely 6 inches) that would put that pitcher at about three inches long. I am sure that I have pitchers on my ventrata less than three inches long that have no wings and exhibit the classic vase shape. That coupled with the broad leaves and I just don't see it being a ventrata.

    Of course you are right -- we will have to wait for a new pitcher to form before we can make a positive ID -- and I have some crow waiting in my fridge in case I am wrong

    The photo you have posted in the last reply? That is not the same plant. That is Jimscotts N. Judith Finn. So you are correct there!! That's no N. ventrata! hehe
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    That will teach me to actually read the note instead of just looking at the picture. It says right above it that it is a Judith Finn -- duh.

    Looks like corw for dinner for me

    lol

    I had no idea this little guy was going to be such a fuss. I think there are a couple leaves that might be starting a pitcher, but nothing that is giving characteristic features.
