    N. alata pics

    Just sharing a couple of pics. This is a clone descendant of a Nepenthes alata I got more than 20 years ago from Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. It's probably prejudice on my part coming from the fact that this was one of my first nepenthes, but this is what I think N. alatas should look like. The only problem with these is that they burn through the pitchers rather quickly, but they make up for it in fast growth and abundance.

    Very nice plant! These are the upper pitchers, right? I just picked one up on Saturday. It's growing well so far with 6 growth points and plenty of pitchers.

    wire, sorry to say but what you more than likely picked up was an xVentrata..... true N alata are quite a bit more uncommon, and you dont just stumble upon them in a nursery....

    Nepguy, you appear to have a VERY happy N. muluensis x lowii living in that tank in the background...

    Very nice!....and here I though that I was one of the few around here that grew a true clone of N.alata...nice to see some others.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    That's a lower pitcher.

    N. x ventrata pitchers are typically longer in the base, without such an abrupt transition.

    Yes, that's a N. muluensis x lowii back there. It's tiny pot is sitting on a seedling cell tray and the plant has sent roots all through the water underneath. No getting it out now.
