    Suprise at the local orchid/suculent shop! :D

    Yesterday, I went inside to have a look around. The place mostly sells orchids, succulents, overprices bonsai, bromelaids etc. I was looking around and found a tray full of a few vft's, some sundews, and nepenthes. Some of the vft's looked dead, some were healthy, the sundews were all dead, and the neps looked healthy. So today I went back to the place and bought 2 neps. I passed up a 10" veitchi because I didnt like the pitchers and also passed up a nep with only dead pitchers. It looked toothy So here are the neps I bought:

    Burbigeae I love this guy O_O



    And I also got tentaculata. Im kind of regretting geting this. Might trade it away even though I just got it lol


    Group shot


    Sadly, there was no truncata but im super happy about getting brubigeae. Hopefully it will survive. Maybe this place will continue to carry neps and it can become my nep supplier

    Nice score there with finding those Neps TOG.

    It looks like your first plant there might actually be a burb x eddie.

    I agree with dvg. It is not burbidgeae, but burb x eddie. The wider, toothy and ridged perisotme is a dead giveaway. The tentac might be pure, thoguh I haven't really had experience with that one.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Myles, I dont know. Maybe its the peristome or maybe its something else. I dont seem to like the pitchers that much. Hopefully it makes a new one and it totally blows me away!

    dvg, burb x eddie it is!

    Hcarlton, the tentac is from BE so I guess we can trust them when they say that its a tentac

    Great find!
    If you have the room and the patience, hang onto them for a while. Let them mature a bit. I have traded stuff away before then kicked myself several months later when I saw some of the more mature pitchers produced.

    Those are incredible finds from an orchid shop. Typically, all I see is the occasional miranda and sanguinea. I wonder what else they had there?

    My local orchid shop carries BE Neps but they are outrageously priced, so even with shipping they're cheaper by mail.
