    My First Nepenthes

    Well, I took the dive today and purchased my first Nepenthes alata. It's a gorgeous, healthy looking plant. I think it's in the intermediate pitcher stage, as the tendrils are doing some funky things and the pitchers are changing shape. I'll get photos as soon as it's situated.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be either. My parents can't stop looking at it. I'm looking forward to seeing the insane growth rate of 6 feet per year.

    Any positive IDs on the species? It was sold to me as N. alata.

    Looks like the usual Deroose alata which is N. alata x (alata x ventricosa) if i'm not mistaken. It is a great plant!

    Nice,
    It does look like Deroose "Alata" which is a hybrid.
    Great starter Nep. Mine grows like a weed.

    Cool. That is the first or second easiest Nepenthes to grow you know.

    Yeah definitely not alata... thats a ventrata/ "deroose" alata.. confirmed what i had thought, as its not easy to come by a "multi growthpoint" alata, TRUE alata that is...
