    Hey cool, a forum without an edit function! Gotta love that!

    Ok, because I posted my really big pictures first and coudnt edit it (I wanted to link them, not to load them on this side), I made some smaller and you can finde the better quality ones here (around 100k each pic)

    Zort I'm almost positive you've got a Nepenthes Coccinea (a hybrid of the species: N. ampullaria, N. mirabilis and N. rafflesiana-I'm not sure that's exactly the crossing order however) and it looks like you're growing it in very good bright light as the peristome does not darken like that unless the light is fairly high (as well as the dark perstome on the N. fusca on the right).

    A nice fast plant! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Zort,
    Offhand I would like to say that's a x 'Coccinea'

    Hopefully someone more experienced can confirm that, but it looks almost exactly like mine, if not quite a bit bigger!

    Great plant! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks a lot guys, I am pretty sure you are dead on with your x 'Coccinea'.

    It certainly has alot of rafflesiana in it, sometimes the plant puts out pure rafflesiana pitchers.

    And I grow it only with artifical light- a 400W whose name I dont know in english [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks again!

    and then it turns out to be right!!

    anyway. maybe its coccinea x rafflesiana

    Zort,

    you do have an edit function, top right of each of your posts, there are three buttons, one of them is edit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    What typeo f light is that 400W? Metal Halide? High pressure Sodium?

    I think Metal Halide has a 440 watt, if your using that, I would be really interested to konw what color temp your using!

    ok, the German word is Natriumdampfhochdrucklampe.

    "Natrium" is "Sodium" and "hochdruck" is "high pressure".

    So I guess it is a high pressure sodium [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It has a big blue part, which should be better for growth.
