    n. x winged grabilis basal?

    This may be my first nepenthes basal. at first I thought it was a weed but then noticed it's location in proximity to the other plant's root system and after a gentle tug am pretty much sure this is my first basal shoot......thought it was a ampullaria thing but I guess this winged mirabilis x gracilis hybrid does it too.......can't wait til this gets bigger.

    anyway here is a pic.....can you guys confirm my suspicion?

    looks like a basal, and i'm pretty sure all nepenthes can basal. N. ampullaria is just famous for it because it will form carpets of basals. Congrats!

    N. gracilis forms basal carpet like ampullaria does. It's not as impressive, but it still does it. There are 3 Nepenthes that do this that I'm aware of; ampullaria, gracilis, and gymnamphora.
