    Unidentified nep, any guesses?

    I bought this huge nep at a really good deal from a local greenhouse which considered it very much an oddity. They had it in their care for a year or so and for being in a beautifully maintained greenhouse it was seriously declining.
    After a few moments if indecision, I couldn't help but attemp a rescue. The plant was potted in a 8-10" hanging basket with no pitchers left and most of the tendrils dried and blackening. It's spent the summer in dappled light outdoors and now is moved to an indoor greenhouse for the winter.
    I am a sundew guy if I had to claim a genus and know little about the neps.
    Can anybody tell me what nep I got?

    odds are very high that you have one of the following:
    1) N x ventrata
    2) N x 'Miranda'
    3) N x 'Judith Finn'

    your image does not work btw.

    Thanks for weighing in drew and pebes!
    Certainly the $ was right! After the damage was done, I paid 40$ for a plant with 5+ growth points and a basal or two.
    I am a sucker for "saving" a plant, and it seems this pointless behavior has finally paid off! Only problem is it's huge----taking up over 30% of the space in my greenhouse.
