    Hi,

    looking at some pictures of these two species, some dubts came in my mind. I have got 2 N. inermis, of from BE and the other from an czech grower (I bought it a the EEE in Prague). However I would like to receive some opinions about this plant: is there the possibility that it is a N. dubia?






    This is the N. inermis from Borneo Exotics


    Thanks to all
    Federico

    Hi all:

    There was a long discussion about a year ago regarding a hybrid inermis X bongso being sold as inermis by a major nursery.

    My N. inermis had a red peristome at that young age due to being grown in bright lighting. When it matured the pitchers were textbook flare mouthed N. inermis. As with many plants extra light will give them a splash of color, I always strive for it. If they grow exactly side by side with same lighting my suggestion would be genetics. Mine was from Wistuba and had the red peristome (when it had a peristome).

    However mine did not have the side blush nor the obvious divided teeth on the peristome as shown in the pic by Fede.

    I would deffinately try and find out the source for the other plant. N. inermis can have some coloring when it is young and in lower pitcher form. The problem is that the hybrid N. inermis x bongso that were sold look very very similar to N. inermis when young. As they get older the color starts to come out, starting with the peristome. That plant looks suspiciously like the hybrid to me. Time will tell though for sure!

    Here is the Wistuba clone with some coloring showing. I have never seen this clone to have just a red colored peristome at the size pictured however. Josh do you have a picture? As far as I know Wistuba just has one clone as I got 30 at one time and they all look identical.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    No I don't Wahhh! My site crashed and I lost all my years of photos and work. I had a backup disk but when I put it in my PC the folder for Nepenthes Garden (ex-Jurassic Garden) was empty... I made all my Neps into cuttings recently (or 90% of them from 2 years of unfettered growth) so all I have are all stems with one or two half leafs for now.

    I can get a pic of my N. inermis lower on the basal shoot, looks just like Fedabra's red one.
