    I am new to inermis; are these lowers, intermediates, or uppers? Thanks for your input:

    I believe true "uppers" on N. inermis should completely lack a peristome.

    My plant looks very similar, but has a small amount of reddish pigmentation, which I'm told indicates it is not the "true" species.

    they look like intermediets to me.

    the tendril attachment is on the side so i would say intermediate. only when its right behind the pitcher is when its uppers. color also comes into play but i think with inermis id doesnt matter...

    I've only had mine a couple months but it is in highland conditions with frequent overhead watering and doing fine. I did notice not to feed it too many bugs as the pitchers rot easily. Mine catches dozens of gnats on its own so I just leave it alone.

    That's a young inermis pitcher. When they get bigger the "uppers" totally lack a peristome. Here's a link to my site so you can check it out.
