    Can't really base off of pitchers but the leafshape and leaf attachment give you the biggest clues....that and a male flower as well I think.

    looks like youve got quite a few of those alatas and mirandas hanging around in there.
    DeRoose's Alata is not x. ventrata. It's N. alata x x. ventrata. It's called "Alata" (notice the capital A) because DeRoose names their hybrids after the mother plant.

    Names hybrids after the mother plant? Cite your source!

    Okay, thanks guys! That is helpful. I have one ending on ebay today and I have it listed as an Alata. I hope that isn't going to come back and bite me. I was going by what Deroose told me. The pictures are plain and very clear to see, so I guess if there are any questions they should have asked before bidding.

    I normally go to the local Farmer's Market to sell these, but it is 103 degrees outside right now and I don't have a tent anymore. Me and the plants both need some shade if we are going to sit out there all day. The last time I did it with no shade over the plants they were vey wilted and pitiful looking by the time I got them back home.

    I believe I first found that tidbit either here on the forums or in Chris Creel's "Nepenthes Growing Information," a text file which circulated the listservs in the late 90s/early 2000s and was available on Barry Rice's page until he started the big overhaul a few years ago. It was also confirmed by a certain vendor that I regularly patronize when I bought one about five years ago now.

    Off of www.***************,
    "This hybrid was developed by a Nepenthes grower, DeRoose, in Belgium. While most nurseries often mislabel it as Nepenthes alata, it is technically a complex hybrid, Nepenthes alata x (alata x ventricosa). We simply refer to it as DeRoose Alata since 2/3 of it's genes come from N. alata.

    Regardless of what you call it, this hybrid is an excellent plant for any first-time grower. It tolerates a reasonably wide range of growing conditions and is very forgiving of mistakes. Grow this plant in a very sunny south or west window. In very bright conditions, its pitchers will turn completely red!"

    IMHO calling it DeRoose Alata gives the most info to anyone knowledgeable enough to know the difference.

    Just my .02
    Good growing, Jack
