    Ok ,here's the question I bought a Nepenthes from Home Depo and it said Hybrid SSP. I don't have a means to post pics yet so if anyone has an idea what it might be that would be great.

    The leaves are slender and it has 2 inch pots at only three inches the plant itself.

    I bought one last week from ********** and the pitchers are much smaller. I just want to know the species it could be so I know what to do and if there is a possibilty they might hybrid.
    I put them in the some terranium.

    Thanks for any help.

    Is this from Gubler's Orchids? That would be the easiest way to narrow it down. Although I don't know which hybrid Gubler's is shipping, it obviously has maxima in it. I have tried it in lowland and highland conditions and had better luck growing it as a highlander, but I'm sure intermediate would be fine too. In my lowland chamber ther pitchers started growing distorted. I have grown them for 5 years and have some pics of what it may look like as it gets bigger.

    I have a new pic of a nice upper I can post later if you're interested.
    A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine
