    About 2 months ago i was in a nursery and baught a bunch of CPs under the seller of lil pot of horrors. I have been able to identify all of the species except the one simply named "nepenthes". If any one has come accross these plants please let me know what species it is, it is doing much better then when it was in the store, i've been keeping it like a low land species, but it is only producing small pitchers. I had it in partly sunny conditions but it began to get leaf burn so i now have it in bright shade. please help

    Nepenthes are the gene (correct me if that is wrong name: Gene) name for the species of Tropical Pitcher Plants. You have a picture of the plant?

    no unfortunetly idont have a scanner. it has evidence of small wings on the pitchers, so i guess its not a N.ventricosa. I think it might be a N.Judith Finn but i'm no expert thats for sure

    saved a plant from Home Depot about 2 months ago. The suplier was "Little pot of Horrors". Heres my description: Slite bulge at the bottom of the pitcher, wings that are pressed flat , Hairs on the top of lid , the lid is very close to permistone, permistone has no over hang on the outside, no spurs, it has small dark green dots at the bulge , a single small light green band after the bulge, a red portion after the band. I just desrccibed a lower pitcher .It thrives in highland coditions. Any ideas as to what it is. Thank you!!!!!

    Does this fit your description?

    The ones I've most commonly seen in home improvement areas are alata and khasiana.
