    Hi Orien

    Welcome to the forums. I wouldn't be surprised if its just bad care. Places like that don't make the slightest effort to provide the proper care so you can get all kinds of weird looking pitchers (dried, rotten, moldy, mishapen, broken) until you get it home and take care of it properly. Once its settled in and started growing, you will probably start getting normal pitchers. If it continues to produce the same type of pitchers every time, then maybe its got some genetic problem. But I'll bet it will respond to good care. I just rescued a n. tobaica from my local greenhouse. Wish I could have taken them all. Hate seeing them sitting there with dead or damaged pitchers.

    Good luck Orien. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    arie, the picture on the bottm is very similar to my new plant, all except the point that mine lacks the red coloration in the pitcher

    Hi!
    I found that same clone in some nurseries here in italy. After observing it a little bit more closely and wondering what the #### it was, I arrived at the conclusion that it's a N. x ventrata cultivar.

    N. x ventrata became one of the most widespread Nep on sale all over the world. No surprise that the producers probably have found a mutated clone and - just for a change - produced a few millions of that specimens and tried to see if "it sells".
    The leave and the rest of the pitcher is exactly the same as N. x ventrata.

    You must live int the midwest, saladshooter. The plants that come in rectangular boxes are from Botanical Wonders, and I've only seen that company in Midwestern states (Illinois, Missouri, etc.). The only ones I believe they sell are N. ventricosa, x Judith Finn, and just maybe ventrata.
