    Ive just rescued an uknown nep at Lowes. It was in a little plastic box, in straight peat with no drainage holes and dry as a bone.
    I was putting it in a bigger pot noticed the main root has split and it looks like there are 2 plants in one. The small plant has 5 or so leaves and it looks like the newest leaf has a prepitcher. The larger one has alot more leaves and 3 or 4 open pitchers. Im assuming i can split it. If so whats the best way of doing it?
    Also, what kind of Nep does Botanical Wonders sell to Lowes?

    thanks,

    josh

    I have found out that N.Ventricosa is the one that is sold to Lowe's from Botanical Wonders. Care to see mine after appox. 1 year after I bought it? I also think your double growth pointed Neps may just be 2 plants next to each other and it APPEARS that they are together. I could be wrong though.

    They dont usually make mistakes like that. It could also be a shoot couldn't it. They also sell N. Judith Finn.

    I have an N. Ventricosa and i think the leaves are greener on the new nep. also it looks like the pitchers look like they are alot greener on the new one as well. there isnt redish color like my N. Ventricosa.
    As for it being 2 plants...i think its a shoot.

    Well considering that you Neps are two juvenile plants, the pitcher will be a dull green anyway as the palnt isn't mature!!!! As that you have 2 shoots I would just let them grow together as you'll have a nice bushy plant when it gets bigger! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
