    Yep some features that are hard to tell. I am going to say N. eymae since it is very much like N. maxima and we have been told that it is not N. maxima. Doesn't appear as best I can tell to be glabrous and it doesn't look like any of the N. faizaliana I have. This is of course assuming it's a species.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    You're right, Tony. N. eymae is also a possibility, and one I'd forgotten about. If
    we could see the forward edge of the operculum, then I think we'd know for sure.

    But somehow I starting to doubt it too- it looks really like a maxima. Strange, the plant was sold me by the German deliverer http://www.plantarara.com, but they had made once a mistake with their plant names.

    I wonder if veitchii x gracilis is really correct..

    ummm ok..


    Sorry but there is no way in the world that is N. veitchii x gracilis. I would even say that it has neither as a parent at all. Perhaps send them a picture. They might be able to match it to other plants they have or may be aware of a mislabelling at the nursery.

    I would put down ? N. maxima for now.. maybe when it gets larger and produces some upper pitchers it will show different features which will aid in further identification.

    Still was fun to try and figure it out!
