    Hello everyone,

    I was in a local garden shop this weekend and found this Nepenthes in a fairly dark corner of the store...so I decided to rescue it. The tag claims it is Nepenthes "miranda." I have never heard of this...Could it be N. x mixta? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Secondly, I'm currently keeping the plant (for the summer at least) next to a southern facing window on a screened in porch. I spray it down 2-3 times/day. Should it fair well under these conditions?...I'm in northern New Jersey. Lastly, it appears as if there are two plants in the one pot...should I split them up?Any replies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Looks like a maxima x something. Nice plant, though!

    That appears to be what I have that has been previously identified as N. x velvet, not 100% positive on that, but the concensus was that it was probably N. velvet, and most definately it had N. veitchii parentage somewhere. No one seems to be really sure of the parentage of this cross though. I have mine labeled as "N. veitchii(?) x unknown)"

    I am growing it in "extreme" lowland conditions outside on my patio (90-100f during the day, mid 80's at night, 70-95% humidity, direct sun through 25% shade cloth) and it is pitchering like crazy.

    Also I see no reason why you can't seperate the two plants, mine also came with two in the pot and they seem to be doing better now that I have separated them.

    Good luck, and enjoy, this is a very beautiful plant.
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    Tom,

    If what Tony has posted is the pic of your plant, it's gorgeous! Nice rescue!
    I think both N. velvet and N. miranda come from the same source, so they must be a little different. I am thinking they are both TC products from Holland.
    This plant also looks a lot like a plant Clyde Bramblett sells called N. 'Cornelius Bak'. It did not do well for me, for some reason.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Wow Tom V!!!
    You don't find plants like that in garden stores very often- especially that big.
    Just curious, how much did it cost you?

    Regards, hamata
