    Good Luck IDing this Nep

    Hey everyone I've got a rooted cutting from this plant that i've had for a good while (nearly 2 years) and it has produce a wide variety of pitchers for me. It seems like every one is different on my rooted cutting but these are from the mother plant which seems to be stable. Any idea what it could be?

    Here are some pictures from my weird cutting from this plant. This is the first pitcher it made in my care.

    And the second pitcher in my care displaying little lid syndrome and vastly different coloration.

    Then back to sort of normal

    Now the most recent pitcher

    I've already determined some sort of maxima hybrid i'm hoping someone can figure out the other parent.

    Thanks for the help!

    A very strange plant indeed! Looks like a different species every new pitcher, but yeah prolly something with maxima in its parentage.
    Gettin there...

    N. maxima hybrid, almost certainly. I see there is a definite waistline to this one, and the peristome is narrower than maxima itself, which leads me to think N. alata might be involved as well. See:

    Paul I was hoping you would chime in on this. Very interesting, that does look somewhat similar i'm wondering if maybe this is a complex cross involving a few other species. But i definitely agree that there is a waist to this one.

    I would say this almost certainly either maxima x alata or more likely maxima X x ventrata.

    Likely a hybrid of some sort. As for parents, I can say that one of those EP "Thorelii" plants has a peristome with a single "thorn" on the front like that, but I also had a N. eustachya which made that sort of peristome structure as well.

    Unrelated to all these great suggestions... this plant is also a confirmed female and the original plant has about 8 bloom spikes constantly so if anyone wants to make hybrids let me know.

    Wow I can't believe that all of those pitchers are from the same genetic material! Like other have said, it's probably a Maxima hybrid.
