    Nepenthes needs an ID

    I inherited this unknown pitcher plant and I thought I'd be able to identify it once it produced a pitcher, but I'm stumped. There just seems to be no distinguishing marks or coloration. Anyone have an idea?

    I found that my ventrata started producing green pitchers under 10000K 50/50 in a terrarium. When outside, it produced pure red/pink/purple pitchers. Just at tip to get it looking awesome. Nice pitcher shape for sure though.

    Ooo something to look forward to then! They were in a green house and under heavy shade so I moved it into an area that has a bit more light and a lot more fresh air. It seems to be even happier now. I'll post an update picture if I get some coloration on it.
