    3 Unknown Nepenthes

    Yellow,

    I've got 3 Nepenthes that I would like to get identified. The pictures I have are from the 30+ yr old mother plants. I have many cuttings finally starting to grow but I cant quite tell what they are! Any Nepenthes experts out there who can shed a little light on my situation?

    Thanks, Peat

    Nepenthes #1






    Nepenthes#2





    Nepenthes#3





    These are all the pictures i have. Sorry.

    I left the pictures rather large in case some close inspection is needed : )

    I would say
    #1 looks to be Nepenthes maxima
    #2 looks to be Nepenthes reinwardtiana though i dont see the 2 common eyespots
    #3 Nepenthes madagascariensis and that's really just a case from looks, a further away shot may help

    I could be wrong on all of those, hopefully a more experienced Nep grower can help out! Sry i couldnt help out more

    #2 is N. alata, possibly the variation "boshiana mimic."

    That was my second guess as well, a little further stretch also I thought it could be a Nepenthes copelandii
