    Name that Nep!

    I found this guy at a local plant nursery. All that is on the plant stick was "Pitcher $9.99"...so your guess will be FAR better than mine since this is my first Nep *all geeked out*

    Here is the entire plant:


    and some of what is left of the pitchers...they all look sad like this:



    Thanks for your help!

    The pitchers have no pink/red on them like those. They are entirely green from what I can tell and are maybe 2 inches long/tall...but they are also dying. Perhaps I will have to wait for a really good pitcher to grow to make that 100% confirmation of a ventrata? Do all ventrata have pinkish pitchers? or are some green?
