    Exclamation

    i sorta bought this highland "alata" today but wont be getting it until about a week or so. the vendor says that its like alata but produces bigger pitchers than alata. there is a chance that is a new species. to me this sorta looks like the other form of copelandii, i think its the pasian form? what do you think. on the same order i got some cuttings of an alata lowlander that produces blood red pitchers. does anyone have this type of alata lowland? please post pics! thanks!!!

    I think I have it but mine is still very small as its only a cutting.. Dont know the size of pitchers yet but from the pictures I have seen on my plant I think it has the same shape and color.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    fc3srx713b, that could very well be alata. There are more forms of alata than you can shake a stick at. Very variable species. Also, it could be an alata hybrid of some sort. Often commercial nurseries call a plant after it's monther, regardless of the father's herritage.

    And not even! To my horror, when I bought a N. 'Rebecca Soper' (ventricosa x ramispina), it was labelled as Nepenthes alata, with a picture of x ventrata!!

    Ah how they enrage yet make me laugh at the same time. Not many things in life can do that (well, at least not in mine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ).

    Cheers,

    Maybe it was just a 'Rebecca Soper' in an old pot that a DeRoose faux alata had come in?
