    My lone, unidentified nepenthes..

    Hello everyone,

    Here it is, my only unidentified nep! Went to check on a tiny pitcher formation today and realized there was a larger pitcher growing sideways, which is perhaps large enough for this baby to finally be identified (even if only roughly for the time being). What do you think?








    The pics were taken with my phone, so sorry about the substandard quality.

    Looks like N.Red leopard to me.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    The pitchers are kinda too young to really tell... I mean it's not mirabilis 'green' x chaniana cuz it's got spots but that's about as far as I can go

    Yeah, I picked it up at Saturday Market in 2010 from the guys at S NW. This was clearly before I had any serious interest in carnivorous plants, considering I threw out the tag. Most of the pitchers now seem to be growing out of a basal that has shot up in the last couple of months. I believe this has something to do with the original growth point being bombarded with heat during its first summer with me.


    To me it looks like it has some ventricosa in it, but that doesn't say much..

    chances also likely that it is a Poi Dog nepenthes....in which case you'd be out of luck, because even the propagator doesnt even know of their origin.

    Many of the SNW plants sold at Saturday market are Poi Dogs; hybrids of unknown parentage. However, many of those are often truncata hybrids or maxima hybrids. Aside from that, I agree that its far too early to tell much about this plant's breeding background.

    Not sure about it being a poi dog. I remember it being labeled as a nepenthes of some kind, and not simply "Poi Dog" as their tags tend to state. Nonetheless, they do love their poi dogs, and it could definitely be possible..
