    My FAVORITE plant

    What can I say? I love this plant. It's a clip clone 1, or if you prefer a N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae).


    It lost all it's pitcher in the transition from 95% humidity lowland conditions to 70+% intermediate-highland conditions (seasonal). I bought it for the peltate leaves, but the next pitcher looks promising! I think I captured the hirsute nature of it in these pictures.


    It didn't turn red until I moved it to the basement in cooler temps. It's under the same light. If it can keep this up I'll be one happy camper!










    Here's the terrarium before I clear out some of the smaller plants to make room. I also plan on coving the front in mylar. It's actually pretty bright in there, it's just the camera adjusting for the glare or some sort of techno-crap they do these days.

    Thanks. Unfortunately it's not a real clipeata, probably. It's more like a fake prada bag

    Its definitely not the true species.
    I'll be making a guide soon (maybe this weekend) to differentiate between the true species and hybrids.

    My clip usually starts out w/ reddish leaves, but a few weeks after they open, they've reverted to green.

    Species schmecies! That "hybrid" is a premier nepenthes. I looks for all the world like clipeata, but has ventricosa hybrid vigor. That's a keeper for sure!

    No, I sent that thing to someone else.


    You really can't say it is or is not a hybrid because no one knows for sure. Until you do some DNA tests or something you can't know for certain. It's OK to say it's probably a hybrid, but you can't say it is for certain. I agree with you phission, it's probably a hybrid, but you can't say you know what it is.
