    Unknown Nepenthes Hybrid

    I got this as a cutting last winter. All I know is that it's a hybrid and it came from Roger Williams Botanical Garden in Providence, RI. May still be too small for an i.d. but, here it is anyway :

    Well, it DOES have lid hairs. Hamata young have them. Any others? I do agree with CPSammich in that it may have hamata in it.

    It's definitely not a ventrata. The pitcher looks nothing like my other small ventrata pitchers.

    could be a young N. ventricosa.. only other possibility

    Edit.. leaf photos would help

    Edit edit... young N. ventricosa usually don't have that big bulbous base, and the fringed wings though so

    Edit edit edit hence I went with N. ventrata which I am 99.99% certain
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
