    Question Need Help With Nep ID

    Anybody Have Any Idea What This Plant / Cross Is???

    Pics~
    http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...77501944fAsfCr

    Ventricosa X ???

    I Honestly Have Absolutely NO Idea What So Ever On Where I Even Got It From ???
    Grew It From a Small Cutting & It's doing Great
    Just Can't Remember Who Or Where I Got It From Thanx To My Advanced Labelling System / LOL

    Was Thinking Maybe Vent x Inermis
    Judging From Some Pics I've Seen / Color & Markings Look About Right
    But I Think I May a Bit Off On That Guess

    Never Really Cared All That Much About What It Was Since It Was Doing Good
    But It's Making It's 1st Flower & It Looks Like It's a Male
    So I would Like To Try And Crosses It with Some Of My Other Neps
    So Now I Want To Know What It Is

    Any Ideas???

    Thanx

    It reminds me of one of those "burkei" plants from seed BE released a while back, the majority of which looked like odd ventricosa and were ventricosa.

    With my poor eyes, I'd say you have a regular, albeit oddly-shaped, ventricosa. I like that clone.

    If you ever have any extras......

    Looked up Burkei & yeah, that could be it

    This pic looks about right~
    http://www.usbg.gov/plant-collection...hes-burkei.cfm

    The flared peristome & the markings on it doesn't look like any of my other Vents
    So I was guessing it was a cross

    Sorry, it's the only one I have
    But it does have some nice basals growing
    So one day

    Thanx For The Input

    I don't believe it's a true burkei.... the shape and color is still off for some reason.

    Oh Well
    Guess I can rule out Burkei

    The leaves aren't right
    http://www.********.com/nuvenbur.htm

    Looking back at some old pics of my plants it might be a cutting from one of My Vents
    LOL

    The pitchers on a lot of my plants look SO totally different from year to year
    Due to the fact that they have been moved from windowsill to outdoors to greenhouse over the years

    Like I've had pitchers that went from a green to red fade while growing on a windowsill to bright sold red growing outdoors to a lighter green growing in my greenhouse

    I guess light & conditions really have a lot to do with it

    It doesn't look like any of my Vents do Now
    But it does kind of look like how some of them did a while back

    IDK

    The leaf trick doesn't work. Those were just two ventricosas IMO as well!

    Watch that link. It's a known CP vendor.
