    That's an interesting hybrid. It appears to have a peltate leaf from what I can see of the photo.

    I see it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Superb observation Rob! Could it be Clipeata hybrid? Clipeata x Veitchii?

    I dunno... My x Ventrata has even more peltate leaves than that... Thers actually about a mm of leaf before the tendril starts (counting from the end tip, inward), so I'm not sure if It has to have parents with peltate leaves... For something so slight, I would think that its just a bit of varieation within the plant itself... I could be wrong (and usually am), I'm just saying... I dunno... If it was part clipeata, I think that it would be more dramatic... And the pitcher itself would have a bit more of a ventricose appearance too, wouldn't it?

    It looks pretty similar to the pitchers on my N.x Judith Finn (spathulata x veitchii). Does your mystery plants persitome turn red or purple after the lids open fully?[/QUOTE]
    yes, they did. one new one just started to open opened 3 days ago. but I don't see the red on the persitome yet,except on the older one.It took about a week to get the full color.it is very,very red!same with the peristome. maybe I can get a pic of my plants. on the second pitcher (on plant #1) I see the same red on the pitcher, but not on the peristome yet.

    P.S. My second "mystery" plant just got its first mature pitcher about the same time the first one did. (the first one has the red pitcher in the pic.), but it didn't get the red peristome,but they are exactly alike.(but the second plant never did get much light, the leave the pitcher is on is shading it,lol.)

    Greg, I see what your saying, some Neps DO drop the tendril off the leaves but it is not considered peltate. Peltate is near halfway on a mature or near mature specimen that is known to produce the phenominon. Clipeata will make the tendril insertion once it gets older, my young Clipeata only has heart-oblate shaped leaves ATM. But should soon be more CLipeata like. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] My Rajah already has the peltate leaves and should continue to drop them further back. And your not wrong.

    gracilis,

    You're right. I should really have said "starting to show peltate characteristics" For an immature plant it's interesting. True, some species drop the tendril just before the end of the leaf like that, but not usually at such an early stage. The N. clipeata I have does not show any such characteristics until the plants are about 10" across.
