    I picked this Nepenthes up at a local hardware store a few months ago. It was unlabeled and now I think the pitchers are large enough that it can be identified. I think it's a saguinea but I'm not 100% sure. Its been pitchering like mad. What do you all think? And by the way, how do you phonetically pronouce sanguinea? Thanks!

    No pics! It says, 'Oops! My image for this link is no longer here.'
    As for the pronounciation, though, it's "san-ghin-ee-ha" or "san-gwin-ee-ha" depending on who you talk to. I pronounce the '-guin-' part like in 'Papau New Guinea' - "ghinney." But it could also be like 'sanguine,' which is 'of or relating to the characteristics of blood' and has a 'w' sound where the 'u' is. I'm pretty sure it's the former, though, 'cuz that's how the guys at Sarracenia NW pronounced it when I got my first N. sanguinea from them.
    I hope you get a positive ID! Best luck.

    Hi!
    Yes,it could be a Sanguinea,the leaf seems to be similiar to the plant. Also the pitcher.
    Wait a little longer in order to have a real image of an adult plant.
    Why are you not sure that it is a sanguinea?
    It is a green form of sanguinea....
    Bye!

    I would say it's N. sanguinea. Definitely a good find at a hardware store. I've never seen a N. sanguinea for sale here in Southern California.

    agreeing both with MrAga73 and LLeopardGGecko, it is a N. Sanguinea.

    Thanks all! I thought so but I'm sort of a newbie so I wasn't sure.

    Did the plant have any labels that had a company name? There is one I know of that puts out x ventrata and sanguinea to distribute to places like hardware and grocery stores.
