    Can anyone ID this nep for me?



    Exo and I were trying to identify this nep and we're both fairly confident that this is NOT a ventrata. My ventrata has a few pitchers of similar size and they are quite different from this one. For one, none of the pitchers on my ventrata have spots. They're also much narrower in the middle and they have that distinct coloration of being redder on top and greener at the bottom. Any thoughts on what this might be? In case you're curious, I've had this plant for a few years and I can't remember if it was labeled when I got it.

    That looks like a basal, there aren't any larger pitchers on the plant?

    Because I'm not going to lie, I want to say ventrata. However it could be anything really. A larger more mature pitcher would help me get a better idea.

    Most of the pitchers on this one are on the basal, which I know doesn't help. The plant seems to have finally settled in from the move from Wisconsin and started producing pitchers again. There's one pitcher on the older part of the plant, but it has only started to inflate, so there isn't much to see there. I wish I could be more helpful.

    Edit: The spots on this pitcher really make me think it's not a ventrata.

    I don't know. I mean maybe, but the peristome doesn't look right to me either for ventrata. Maybe I'll just have to be patient and wait until it makes bigger pitchers.

    i would still argue ventrata...either that or ventrata x ventricosa.
    hybrids arent uniform in appearance... there is much variance, which resembles mostly like a bell curve, where opposite sides represent the parental characteristics...the majority will look like a fusion of the two, but there are others that will lean more to one parent than the other.

    Given the current appearance, I do not believe it is ventrata, or at least any of the commonly grown clones of it. The pitcher shape is similar, but the color and texture of the pitcher are way off, and the leaves lean more towards ventricosa. My guess is that it is a ventricosa hybrid, but not ventrata.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
