    Mystery Nepenthes

    Let's see if you guys can ID this nepenthes. On another forum N. x Mixta was suggested but it really doesn't seem to be that. There are some spots on the inside of the pitcher too. Any ideas? (Sorry for the large pics)

    Could be a X Miranda. Hard to tell on the pitcher until it opens fully and you can see what the peristome will look like. Leaf shape and pitcher coloration look right though.

    Yeah I'd second that it looks almost identical to mine when it first came, but as Cthulhu138 said you will have to just wait and see

    Thanks for the suggestions. I do have better pictures of the pitchers, I try to post more later. But this picture is from a similar hybrid from a fellow grower:

    Ok, here's a few pictures which show the peristome. There's some "striping" on it.

    Could be plain Maxima, but Miranda sounds good too.

    Hmm some of the Net's Miranda photos look similar. Maybe the peristome spreads more when the plant gets older. Thanks for the answers.
