    Some nepenthes pics

    Here are some of my plants
    Sanguinea

    This one is labeled as Alata from Deroose plants, but someone told me it might be ventrata instead. What do you guys think, and how can you tell the difference?

    Not really anymore, I sell them at a local Farmer's Market and I'm about out now. I'm getting ready to order some more though. So how can you tell an alata from a ventrata, and why would they have their plants mislabeled?

    I think it can be called ventrata since it is a mix between ventricosa and alata although it is slightly different from what most people would define as xVentrata.

    Alata DeRoose I believe is alata x (alata x ventricosa) and xVentrata is alata x ventricosa. I have a DeRoose alata but it was also called xVentrata in the description when I purchased it from an Online nursery. The label on the plant did describe it as alata x (alata x ventricosa) though.
    Not a nep expert, just my observations.

    Mine has turned into a shrub in the year and a half I have had it. It has 1 3ft vine and 2 2ft vines along with 3 basals. A real beast!

    You can just tell if itīs a ventrata/Deroose alata. The pitchers are usually red on top and green on the bottom, but they can be all red. The leaves are also easy to tell from other Nepenthes.
