    Mystery Nepenthes

    I saved 3 nepenthes from the local garden 5 months ago.
    One small two big. (i got them free, or then the gardener would have thrown them to courtyard). Anyways the other big plant turned to be N.maxima, very pretty one.

    Now im having problems with identifying another when it started to make a pitcher. Theres a photo:


    Its very green with red spots/stripes and the whole plant is hairy.
    At first i thought it could be N. veitchii but i think it cant have spots/stripes!
    The lid has now opened and i will post a photo when the lid has fully developed

    Any guesses?

    I am notoriously bad at identifying plants, but that usually doesn't stop me from taking a swag.

    I am going to guess rafflesiana.

    it could be a a veitchii. I have never grown a veitchii so I'm not sure what they look like unopened. They can have striped peristomes. And pretty sure some forms have spots too.

    Don't take my guess as anything other than a guess. Given my past performance, there is a 99% chance I am wrong

    I see no rafflesiana in it but I do see the wings, hood and pitcher curvature that N. bicalcarata has.
    My guess is a N. bicalcarata hybrid.

    Edit: Here's why I think bical

    dash, i was going to say raff as well. the developing pitcher looks pretty tubby and the distance between the lid and the body of the pitcher also supports this. a fully developed pitcher would definitely help.

    Thanks pals : )
    Hmm. rafflesiana would be a good guess but keep in mind its hairy . I have rafflesiana withour hairs. Is bical hairy?

    I forgot to mention that the 3rd plant is the same as this big. It had a pitcher couple of months ago and it looked like this:

    No bical is not hairy but that trait may come from the other parent plant. Do you have a picture of an open pitcher and a picture of the peristome? A picture of the leaves would help as well.
    There are several hairy Nepenthes like albomarginata, chaniana and many more.
