    Nepenthes whaddisit, part two

    A few months ago I posted pictures of a mystery Nepenthes. We never did come to a conclusion, only because the little guy was too young. Today, however, it surprised me with a super-duper-sized pitcher with certain distinguishing features. Perhaps now we can tell!

    This plant has shown me that it's a highlander, for sure, by pitchering only during winter. I will need to cater to that need-- I really don't have true HL or, Heaven forbid, UHL conditions. Must fix.

    Please forgive the sun-burned leaf in the pictures. I had a build-up of leaves on the roof, and cleaned it off before thinking about the impact it may have had. Whoops!








    A little birdie told me it may be N. eyemae. I'm not gonna say it is, (I hope, I hope, I Hope!), but here's a tantalizingly similar picture I snagged off the photo finder:



    ETA: I found another photo online, this one's nearly identical to my plant:

    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Seems like a nice colourful version of N. eymae... I'd say it is indeed one.

    If you look through this you'll see some match yours closely:

    hmm.. whoever told you that it might be eymae seems to sure know their stuff! And true eymae is tough to come by. I'd say you've got yourself a keeper!
