    Hi again,
    I picked this up at a nursery yesterday. It doesn't look like the kind of nep that you would find at a nursery or home depot, etc.
    This pitcher is about 3 inches long.

    there is a pic on Tony's site that looks almost identical. N. hirsuta
    The leaves are short and roundish. Anyone know what it is?

    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I have this other plant that I forgot to post pics of. This is a Gubler Nep from Home Depot. It looks like it might be the same as the first one that I posted..
    This pitcher is about 1.5 inches long.

    Heres a top view showing the short wide leaves.

    Boy....my best guess, based on TC plants around the world in big production..is that it's a young N. Miranda, but I am not too confident.

    Cheers,

    One of the several different Nepenthes Gublers produces is an unknown N. maxima hybrid.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Oi, I did not even notice it was a Gubler's. That probably throws Miranda out, as Gubler's does their own..I think.
    Years ago I saw a mature "unknown maxima hybrid" that somebody grew out. The pitchers were nicely colored, but the lids were deformed.

    Cheers,

    Joe
