    Hello,
    I recieved this plant as a gift awhile back, and I'm wondering exactly what species/variety it is. I'm not a Nepenthes expert by any means, so please help me out if you can. On one side of the tag it simply reads "N. gracilis". Simple enough. However, on the other side of the tag, it reads: "N. Mirabilis "Brunei speckled" ".

    My initial assesment is that this might be a hybrid of some sorts? Any info would be appreciated. Here's a pic for you all.

    The pic doesn't show up for me. Hmm. Could you just post a direct link to it? Some home sites don't let you link directly to other web pages.

    Sorry about that. Geocities doesn't like the hyperlink access from what I hear. Here's the updated pic [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    That's a very interesting form of N. gracilis. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Maybe it's a hybrid between the two names on the tag? Could you get a picture of one of the pitchers if possible? Preferably the front of it.

    That is a wonderful plant Homer. I notice that the leaves seem to be reddish. When I placed my N. x Coccinea into a new hot tank (under brighter lights, more heat and more humidity) its leaves began to turn red so I took a bank of lights away. Now I wonder if it was alright that way and I should have left the lights.

    Also, I wonder if yours is a Gracilis "nigrapurpurea".

    nepenthes gracilis,
    I'll have a picture of a front pitcher in just a bit...
    Copper,
    As it turns out, this plant has always been reddish. The friend that gave it to me had it a few years, in various conditions, most of the time it was on the cool side with lower light levels in fact. Only recently has this plant been placed in higher light/warmer conditions. The color has stayed the same, but it is very vine like now. If it wasn't for the glass side of the tank, it would be laying horizontally.
    BTW, the soil is as outlined in The Savage Garden. Temps are currently low 70's F high and mid 60's F low.
    -Homer
