    hey guys,
    I recieved the following 2 nepenthes a few years ago. They were both identified as N.truncata x vietchii. But the two are rather different.

    Nep 1-
    -is rather hairy
    -has winged pitchers

    Nep 2
    -very smooth pitchers and leaves
    -no winges
    -larger
    -nodes closer together/more compact

    here are the pics

    here is the 1st nep

    here is the 2nd nep

    here is a picture of the side of a Nep 1 pitcher. Notice the hair.

    These plants are both very large and mature. Both are about 2 feet in diameter.

    Thanks

    I think that the original ID was probably correct, I can see both vietchii and truncata in both of them. Its very common for plants with identical parentage to look startlingly different.
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    Hey Mike,
    On the second one, I can't quite tell from the pic...Are the leaves heart shaped? If they are, it's most likely pure truncata, if not, then it's a hybrid, though I can't say for sure the other parrent.
