    Grabbed another Dome of Doom

    I ended up grabbing another dome of doom today. Anyone want to take a guess at what it is? My first thought was rafflesiana, but after reading through some posts on another forum, I'm starting to think it could be hookeriana.

    I would have thought Ventricosa, but I'm not sure

    Where did you buy that plant?

    Got it at a very well known hardware store. It's definitely not ventricosa, the pitchers are too squat and hairy. Even the tendrils are hairy, which you can see in the photo if you look closely enough.

    Leaves resemble those on my N. ventrata. Once a few mature pitchers develop it will be easier to ID.

    If it comes from Gubler's orchids then it could be N. Judith Finn. I was at the greenhouse a week ago and they had a few trays of N. Judith Finn ready to be 'domed' up.

    The leaves, tendril, and the pitcher that are starting to form are definitely N. rafflesiana. 2 years ago i got 2 neps from Gubler at home depot that are rafflesiana; it is pretty rare to come by but it does happen.

    Deffinitly not a Ventrata or Ventricosa like the others are saying, the currently developed pitcher do look like young Raff as huy stated, and the wings would have been lost long before those pitcher were they Venricosa, ventrata wouldnt be that shape in the pitcher either. So im sure its Raff.
