    A friend gave me a Nepenthe to nurse back to health.
    This is it after a four month rehabilitation period. It us a rather attractive plant and I wonder if someone would be nice enough to identify it for me?





    Thanks for the help. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    This is most definitely the nep hybrid sold by Gublers. I think many agree that it is N. x gentle

    Thanks guys, it will now be returned to the owner as N. x gentle.
    PAK your comments are always so complimentary. I am blushing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    You seem to have a wonderful outlook on life...perhaps it is because of that cute little dog Jonah.

    lol Lauderdale...if you blush that easily I could reeeaaally make you blush. hehe (Actually I blush very easily myself...hate it!). I try to be positive, but we all know sometimes its not easy. But given a choice, I'd rather laugh than cry. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    My dog is my heart and soul. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] When his light extinguishes, so will mine. And I know that time is drawing nearer. It weighs heavy on my heart.

    Hi Jan,
    Those are sold here in south Florida as N. Corn.Bak from that well known big Dutch Nursery who has a U.S. Distribution point in Apopka. They consider the exact parentage to be proprietory information, but I think it's the same thing as N. 'Gentle'. Almost for sure a fusca hybrid. They do real well for us at this time of year, but can get a little sulky during the late summer heat. Ours bloom consistently every Oct-Nov, when temps at night start to cool off again. If it's the same clone, its a boy.

    Trent
