    Nep ID

    Well, this was ordered as a talangensis, but as many commented, it's in fact NOT a talangensis. So, what is it? I'm now thinking maybe Nepenthes distillatoria, but wanted some more opinions. Forgive the poor quality of especially the first photo...I hate this camera!

    N. distillariora is pretty similar. Don't label it as such until you're actually certain it is.

    Talagensis that is not.

    I don't plan on labeling it anything definitive until it gets older, and there's some consensus. If I decide to keep it that long. Right now, space is in short supply, and I'm not really wanting to keep a bunch of plants that I don't have a positive ID on. This is the second Nepenthes-specific order I've done, and both times I've gotten misidentified plants. What terrible luck!! arg! I still have another order coming, but it's been weather delayed for a while...so hopefully when that comes in, everything is correct haha.

    EDIT: also, in coming up with distillatoria, I reviewed the availability list of the place I ordered from. There was no thorelii, but they did have mirabilis var. echinostoma. Though I know plenty of places will have plants that are not offered on the list, for one reason or another.

    The leaves also sport hairlike projections along the sides. I don't know how I forgot to mention it earlier! But hopefully it will help with an ID. It also seems to be growing quite fast, though considering it's next to ephippiata, lowii, and rajah, that probably doesn't matter.

    Arg! Oh well. I guess I'll have one more thing to trade when the weather cheers up.
