    Identify N. x Unidentified!

    This plant is a 24" or more vine. Just got it today. It's labeled "N. x Unidentified", so it needs to be ID'd. It only has two upper pitchers, no lowers... So it kinda sucks ID'ing it...

    Fully colored upper...


    Full vine...


    INFO: The stem is redish and greenish, but it may just be the lighting it was kept in. The new growth of the stem is green. The leaves are reddish on the top and greenish on the underside, but it may just be the light too. The STEM AND THE LEAVES are furry, not very, but they are slightly still. The underside of the lid on the upper pitchers is red, the top side of the lid is green. The bottom of the pitcher is green, the top is speckled red. The peristome is red-purple with dark red-purple stripes. If you need any more info, please ask me.

    MY THOUGHTS: Maybe has some copelandii in it? It looked very similar in upper pitcher SHAPE when compared to N. x Rokko, the peristome was also similar as well as the leaf shape. This is my first plant with true uppers, so I have no clue what to make of it.

    Any ideas help! Thanks in advance!

    Looks like a stenophylla or hybrid. I'd bet on pure steno though, as there aren't really many hybrids and the ones I could find on Cpphotofinder don't fit.

    It's a little more plump than a stenophylla. Also, the pitcher lid is fully colored and not speckled, and there's more speckled on the body, mostly on the upper part. So possibly a hybrid? Does look pretty similar to stenophylla.

    Just found this of a steno online and the shape actually does match...


    Does the lid and pitcher coloration vary from individual to individual? The non-speckled, solid-color lid is the only thing that doesn't match.

    Yeah, I bet variation between seed grown plants would explain that. I really like how your plant has a "two tone" look to it.

    Thanks! I'm glad I you guys figured out what it is. The ID seems pretty accurate. I'll stick an additional label into the pot tomorrow. If anyone has any additional ideas, please feel free to add them. Thanks again!

    Does anyone have any info on the species stenophylla? Will it be okay in 40% humidity for a few hours each day as long as the humidity rises to 80-90% at night? Will watering it a bit more help its case?

    Hi Guys,

    I would very careful when giving out advice on the ID of an unknown plant.


    Thats being said it does seem to resemble a plant I grow labeled Nepenthes x thorelii x Wittei

    If we know where the plant originated from that would help us track it down.

    Thanks
