    I purchased this little guy from a nursery in Baltimore about 3 years ago, and it only was labled "NEPENTHES".
    I am not sure what type it is, so any input would be muchly appreciated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    His name is Egor, by the way [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I will need a close up of the pitcher (as close as you can get with it still being clear) for a better identification, but i think Egor is something with N. ventricosa in it, maybe even a purebred.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I'm going to guess N. ventricosa as well.

    Okay....I tried to take close-up shots of the pitchers, but they came out too blurry,
    so I am posting a photo that I didn't compress so that you can see the pitcher closer:

    Some sort of N. ventricosa hybrid. Not a pure N. ventricosa though. The angle of the pitcher opening is wrong (along with some other aspects). Could be N. Ventrata made with a very spotted N. alata. Or perhaps some other species or mix of species. I don't think you will ever know for certain. So I would just label it N. ventricosa hybrid. Maybe when it gets larger it might show some different traits which will help narrow it down more.

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

    definately has some ventricosa in it but not completely pure looks like it might have some sanguenia or alata as well, good observation starman!
