    I'm supposed to be getting this plant along with a n. khasiana sometime soon:

    He doesn't know what its mixed with, but its mixed with something. Any ideas? Posted in the nep and the identification forum since some people visit the nep forum most.

    n. 'gentle' would be a good bet but the leaves seem to wide in comparison to the length of them and the pitcher's peristome seems a tab bit elongated for 'gentle' and well, the pitchers are really upright.

    i don't know, my guess is as bad as any.

    Could just be a young N. Miranda.. N. Gentle is usually more purple with a thinner pointer pitcher lid. Although narrow tall pitchers certainly fits N. Gentle. Or perhaps it's just some unknown N. maxima hybrid.

    Hey Guys,

    This is my plant I am sending Amateur_Experts way. Here's a little history:

    I bought this plant at either Lowe's or Home Depot. They were bought on the same day along with 4 other neps that I rescued from HD and Lowes.

    It was a Gubler's Orchid nep and when I posted pics of this same plant back in the spring the consensus was "x maxima". You can see the thread here:

    http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2707&highlight=

    WAIT A BIT...I am mixed up a bit here...

    Now that I look back at the old thread I realize that I am mistaking one plant for another. The one pictured in the link, is another NEP I have. The one shown in the photo above that I sent Amateur_Expert is ANOTHER nep I got on that day from Lowe's or Home Depot.

    It's identity has not been scrutinized...so I'd better get some closer pics of the pitchers themselves. Now that I look at it, I do see some fusca in it. Especially by the way the peristome is.

    Look forward to some better pics soon. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
