    ID/Repotting?

    It was love at first sight. I couldn't help myself. And for only $10 Does anyone suspect an ID on this beauty? Also, It seems to be potted in a simple peat and pearlite mix. Should I repot it or let it be? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Looks like N. x ventrata (ventricosa x alata). Don't use peat, use long frond sphagnum and perlite or orchid bark.

    Grow what, Nepenthes pie?

    Definitely N. x ventrata. As suggested above, Long Fiber Sphagnum and perlite (pumice if you can get it works great), and orchid bark thrown in for a variety in the soil is good. Nice size to the plant, that's for sure....
    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.

    I think the only reason you'd need to repot it is to give it more room. I bought one about 1/3 the size of that and in less than 2 years it grew into a giant bush with 6 multiple foot vines. If you put it into a massive pot now, you won't have to later.

    Thanks for the advice! What about light requirements for this species?
