    Does it usually look like that? I see another pitcher off to the side that looks like it has a lid but the peristome looks a little funky on that one also. Some more pics might help of the leaves, side views, and other pitchers.

    With what I have seen so far, I would say... a wierd xVentrata

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

    Might it have ampullara in it? Just guessing from the look of the peristome.

    Interesting. I have a nepenthes alata or ventrata that I rescued last winter that is finally pitchering for me and it seems to be doing something similar...bulbous pitchers with mouths that flare backwards, and the tiniest of lids. I was going to wait to see if the pitchers continue this way throughout the season. I'll post a pic of it next week. Oz

    I do also think it may be a malformed pitcher due to environmental factors. Here is the new species I discovered in my terrarium:

    [img]http://home.**********.com/joachim/N_inermis_ventricosa_def.jpg[/img]

    The plant produced only two of these strange pitchers growing under too low humidity. The other ones look more like the original N inermis x ventricosa pitchers. Intermediate:

    Upper:

    And it is quite normal that nepenthes produce strange pitchers with too small lids grown under too low humidity - well at least mine do this.

    VERY interesting Arie! My guess it would be an N. Ventricosa x Ampullaria or an N.Ventrata x Ampullaria.

    Yes, I have to say, it does look VERY ampullaria X ventricosa... Since ventricosa's lids are usually VERY close to the peristome, I would think that the position the other pitcher's lid is in is about in between that of ventricosa, and ampullaria... With a ventrata, I think that It would be reclined a bit further... not only is the bottom of the pitcher ventricose, but the top is too, which makes me think that there isnt any alata in it...

    I had ventrata do the same thing when I first got it. Except there was a tiny lid (about .5 cm diameter) on a 5" pitcher.

    Leaf and pitcher look exactly the same but mine are pure deep red.
