    Smile My New Nepenthes

    My brother bought this for me yesterday at Lowes. I think it looks pretty healthy for a Lowes cubed plant. Anyone have any idea which nep it is? A couple people suggested ventricosa. Thanks!

    That's so kind of your brother.
    You have a pretty ventricosa there.

    Thank you very much Limeslide. I thought it was very thoughtful of him myself.

    Out of the 4 I have around me only one store had one plant of Nep. They do have lots of VFTs and Purple Pitchers at a few of them though.

    Every time I see another death cube plant I am re-amazed by how pale they manage to get their plants.

    I mean there's not an ounce of pigment in that plant.

    Looks healthy though! good luck growing.

    You think its from the low light conditions they keep them in? Everytime i've seen CPs in Lowes they are in a poorly lit area, crowded together on a bottom shelf. I figured thats why the VFTs always look so funky. I bought a purple pitcher from them tht was pale yellow and now it's starting to get purple veins and the pitchers are coloring up.

    I don't have much experience with CPs but my guess is the low light conditions Lowes grows them in that are keeping them from growing to full potential. Thanks for looking in Dex!

    Yeah it is definitely the low light levels they get.

    Which why I am always surprised. They must have talent to keep them in such low light levels enough to grow but not enough to die. Half the plants I've tried growing on my windowsill don't make it, yet the death cubes survive with that pasty green color

    Just a thought! I honestly can't say for sure if it is ventricosa either, the leaves look like it, but the pitchers are so nondescript!

    I hope to see it color up and start looking good.
