    Question ventricosa x northiana or ventricosa x spathulata?!?

    I bought this plant as N.x ventricosa x northiana but i'm starting to suspect its actually N.x ventricosa x spathulata. Can any of you more experienced nepenthes growers help with the ID? Thanks beforehand.

    looks spot on to the pics on CPphotofinder. I have 2 of these myself. They both look like your pic as well as the pic on site aforementioned.

    Pretty disappointing imo....I was hoping to see something special in these guys!

    So you think its the northiana hybrid?

    I actually like it. Definitely not the most showy but looks like it will have a nice peristome when it gets older.

    I believe it is. I can see the northiana in the interior of the pitcher walls. The colored "splotching" rings true on my N northiana's pitchers.

    Huh, interesting. It really does look like N. ventricosa x spathulata, moreso than ventricosa x northiana. But on photofinder it matches the description pretty well.

    Maybe it is just a disappointing cross (for having a northiana parent, otherwise it is pretty handsome).

    Here's my ventricosa X spathulata
    Nepenthes ventricosa X spathulata

    I don't know what you have there but, Id say it's not ventricosa X spathulata. At no point did mine make pitchers that resemble yours.
