    Hi Ries,
    Looks to me like you have a N. Miranda there. Is the peristome coloring up more red as the pitcher gets older?

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

    Hi,

    No, this is not miranda. I have miranda too...and it's lots bigger, and has much more red.
    The pitcher on the photo is only 8 cm in length.
    Anyone??

    Thnx!

    Ries

    Hi Ries,

    Ok then. Looks just like a young N. Miranda to me.... Nepenthes change in shape and color as they get older.

    Wait till it grows up and I bet it will be just like your big one.

    Hi guys,

    I'm really sure this is not N. x miranda. The leave's and even the pitchers are very different. I have small N. x miranda too...it's really not the same...

    Howdy Ries,

    Then post some more pictures. Picture of the plant might help. Dimensions of the pitcher in the photo? Dimensions of the plant etc? Where did you buy the plant and any other information you could give.

    I really think it is a small, perhaps not quite as happy as it could be, N. Miranda. If it isn't that then all I can say is you have some sort of N. maxima, perhaps N. northiana and who knows what else hybrid. Until it grows up larger that's my best guess.

    Tony

    This looks just like the one I bought from Home Depot. I think some people said it was N. x "gentle"
