Thread: Grocery store nepenthes

    Any ideas? I got it for $1.50 at the grocery store a month ago and it's finally pitchering so I figured I'd take a few pics and see if anyone knows what it is.

    Hmm been puzzling on this one. Could be N. Ventrata.. leaves look a little wide. Maybe N. Judith Finn... But I would think more fuzz on the tendrils and leaves would be evident.

    I am thinking it's a little misleading despite the size because it looks like it was grown in lower than ideal light and showing more immature features than would be expected for the apparent size. You can see a couple hairs on the lid still which would indicate to me the pitchers are still somewhat juvenile.

    Think it needs to grow up a bit yet..

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    are n. alata's leaves wider than ventrata leaves? i have what i think is a ventrata (has one tiny pitcher) but was labeled as an alata. i dismissed the fact that it might have been an alata but the leaves look wider than my other ventratas.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    It was deffinately grown in less than ideal conditions until I bought it.. low light would be an understatement. The other plants have some larger pitchers forming so maybe they will be a bit more "grown up"
