    Nepenthes ID









    Pitcher about to open! Anybody can guess what species is this?? It had a few pitchers when I got it but it all dried up.

    I'll snap another picture when it opens so it may be easier to identify .

    Without at least one open adult pitcher, it's impossible to ID it.

    Damn, that would take me a year or so.

    You received this plant without any ID at all? Do you know for a fact that it's a species? Were you at least told whether it's a highland or a lowland variety?

    I'd hazard a guess and say it resembles N. x hookeriana.

    It was sold to me as 'Unknown Hybrid'. I'm growing it in a ultra lowland condition. My own Nepenthes Hookeriana can barely pitcher in my condition

    It's definitely an ampullaria hybrid, but a lot of those are going to look really similar when the pitchers aren't open.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
