    my first nepenthes!

    i got this awhile ago at my local home depot, and i was going to make a thread about it then, but i kept forgetting to upload the pics, but whatever, here it is now!

    three of the pitchers were a little damaged, two were un-damaged, two were dried up, an one had yet to open(since then, it has!) the growth points (it has four) looked ok though, and have grown some since i got it.

















    since i took these, i moved the pot from sitting on that stand to hanging in the window.

    what is it? likeley to be n. miranda, i googled around, searching stuff like 'home depot nepenthes', 'what nepenthes are sold at home depot', and 'hanging basket nepenthes'. i came across a thread on another CP forum about lowes/home depot plant id's, and one of the members had said that the plants in the hanging baskets were almost always n. alata, or n. miranda, and mine looks like it is probably/mabey a miranda. if anyone here thinks it is something else, please let me know!

    Based on the size and pitchers, it's definitely a N. x Miranda.

    I wish the home depots by me had any CPs.

    I actually work in the garden center at home depot, and alas, we don't have any CPs....maybe I can fix that....
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This was my very first nepenthes as well and it's still a big favorite today. If you have the option put it outside, it makes even bigger pitchers in more light.
