    The Deroose plant is N. ventrata. Someone posted online a while back thinking it looked too N. alata - ish so must be alata x ventrata which is pure speculation. Personally I don't see it looking any different than any other N. ventrata. If it does to some people then perhaps it's better explained by the N. alata as the female parent /shrug. If anyone is concerned about relabelling then simply keep calling it Deroose 'N. alata'..
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks Tony. I got it as a N. deroose alata, or a Deroose "N. alata," or however you want to call it, from another member here on TF. Personally I find their looks indistinguishable from N. ventrata; their vigor seems to be what distinguishes them. But given that they do have different parentage, it would be more accurate to call that out, correct? Unless this whole thing about the Deroose alata being an alata x ventrata is complete bunk in the first place, in which case I will gladly adjust my nomenclature!

    My N. vent x spec "Giant" just popped a nice new pitcher. Had to snap a pic with my iPhone. Sorry for the crappy washed-out image!

    Nice to see that your ventricoas has a ton of grow points. Has anyone ever gotten a plant that has a growth point above every leaf? Just happened to me...


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    This N. ventricosa x spectabilis "Giant" is being a camera hog lately. It just can't stop putting out bigger and bigger pitchers:


    Once this N. x ventrata cutting throws down some roots, one lucky TF member will win it in a giveaway! (pitchers of the parent plant in the background, itself a cutting from a bigger plant... definitely a weed)


    N. mirabilis:


    N. lowii x campanulata:
    Edit: taking a mulligan on this one see below

    Some more pics that are not of Nepenthes.... but oh well!

    P. 'Sethos,' P. 'Titan,' and D. capensis


    P. 'Sethos,' P. 'Titan' (background), D. spatulata "Fraser Island," and some random fern
