    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to this forum, and to keeping Nepenthes. This is my first post in the forums. About a week ago I was at Home Depot here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada when I came across this Nepenthes that just said Asian pitcher plant on its tag. It says nothing to who grew it, all it says that it was grown in canada.

    Can I get your guesses to what it is ? or If your a expert I'm sure you know exactly what it is. Here are two pics:





    Also, Does anyone know where I can find Nepenthes plants here in Toronto, or Ontario, or even Canada.

    Thanks a Bunch,

    Anthony

    Hi anthony and welcome to TerraForums. Being bought at a Home Depot, it is likely that you have an N. ventrata, but that isn't definite. Your best bet at procuring CP's, outside of online or DIY, is to get hold of fellow Canadians. Here's a link that you can use for that purpose:

    Can you resize the pics to ~640 x 480 (roughly 1/3) pixels? That fits the best on this discussion forum.

    Hey there and welcome to the forums!

    Looks like you picked up a N. ventricosa, possibly N. ventrata.

    I'm not what you'd call an expert, but it looks pretty much like my ventricosa
