Hello there! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
I purchased several months ago a Nepenthes alata. I really wanted an alata, so I found it available on E-bay and I bought it. But now that the plant is bigger and the pitchers that the plant produces are completely developed and big, I think that what I received was not an alata, but a ventrata. At least for me, both plants and the pitchers of both of them are exactly the same.
Can you help me with this identification? Is it possible that what I think is an alata it can really be alata? How can I recognize the differences between alata and ventrata?
Here is a pic of what I bought as alata:
And here is a pic of my bigger ventrata:
