    I'm gonna see how this goes and adjust things as necessary, but here's where they're at now:



    And the Nepenthes "Miranda" pitchers:





    EDIT: That's a south-facing window.

    A local nursery here in denver has a miranda, it was in awful condition, and i decided not to get it. holes in the leaves and only 2 pitchers, one was at a 90 degree angle, the other was brown and i know right now there is no way i could revive it. I am willing to make a second trip there after i get some cash, can you PM the name of the place?

It is most probable that the Deroose N. ventrata which has been available in garden centers etc worldwide since the early 1980's is simply N. alata x ventricosa.
    Thanks! That's much more informative than the opposing viewpoint I've heard, which came from a fairly trustworthy source also in the business but basically amounted to, "It's now thought that..." and referring back to Deroose's naming practices. Shaky ground, but when combined with the "Alata" =/= "alata" line of reasoning, it was believable enough.
