    Unknown Nep

    I bought an unhealthy looking young Nepenthes from a local garden center a couple of weeks ago in an attempt to bring it back to health, it's doing great but it didn't have any indication as to what it is. If any of you guys could give me a clue as to what it is then that would be great!

    Here's some pictures of it...





    The first pitcher to develop after i got it home


    The only pitcher on it when i bought it

    Looks........healthy.

    And it looks like N x ventrata.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Thanks for the I.D. I was hoping it wasn't a ventrata as I bought a mature one with it, but I'm sure I'll enjoy watching it mature anyway :P

    It doesn't look like a ventrata.. Leaves are different as well as the pitchers.
    Maybe N.madagascarenis since it's the next most-common nep. (But then again the peristome looks different from madagascarenis)

    But I'm almost confident that it's not ventrata.. It has thorelli in it though!

    I was hoping it wasn't a Ventrata due to the peristome not joining where the lid is attached to the pitcher but I'm fairly recent to the CP game so Exo I'll trust your judgement! ^^

    I'm no expert but that doesn't look like a N x ventrata to me either.

    All of the ones I've seen have a stubbier belly from the ventricosa parentage which is lighter in color and usually greener than the upper part of the pitcher. Granted, the pitchers in that pic aren't fully developed and are still somewhat juvenile but idk..

    Here's two shots of my ventrata for reference (although a much older plant). There are lots of different clones from various nurseries but they all more or less look like this from what I've seen.





    But again I'm by no means an expert, just throwing in my two cents worth
