    Hi
    A friend of mine who lives in the States has just got into CPs. She has recently purchased a Nepenthes from Home Depot. This is supplied from Gublers. It is of course one of those nameless plants simply called Nepenthes! Does anyone here know what species it might actually be? Lowland or Highland so I can advise her.

    cheers

    Ahh, the age old question. Just what the heck is a Nepenthes x "home depot"[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] I have one with four pitchers, and I still have no idea. I know they sell N. ventricosas, but that's not what mine is. Beyond that, I have no idea. Need pictures!!!

    Incidentally, I just bought one yesterday at Orchrad Supply Hardware that was clearly a ventricosa, but the label didn't even say Nepenthes! Just "pitcher plant". It looks great, though!

    A search for gublers might bring up old threads. Off the top of my head..
    N. ventricosa
    unknown N. maxima hybrid
    and one other I can't recall..

    Intermediate conditions should do fine. None of them require special growing conditions.

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

    Here's my N. x Home Depot from Gubblers when I got it almost 2 months ago:

    Here it is now:

    I have no idea what it is, still.

    Hmm. I can't say I have any complaints about the health and growth of my gubler's nep. Mine's almost doubled in size in just 2 months, and has made pitchers on each new leaf. Go figure.

    I just can't match mine up with any of the listed neps grown by them. Maybe N. coccinea? Mine doens't seem as red, though. Oh well, time will tell.

    Yeah, I got a nep from lowes a few months ago and now acclimated to outside, it is turning a reddish color and growing rapidly although the pitchers are few and far between. Capslock-did you just transplant your nep to that orchid pot? No other pot? I am wondering if you had much trouble there, all my guys are in hanging pots, such as yours, but I don't know about the way it APPEARS you have yours planted. More info would be nice...It is nice to have my neps doing well, they all came from different conditons from being literally drown in 2" of water, to inside an ac'd building to full sun. They are now all hanging under an umbrella with partial sun and hav a daily rain watering. Besides a few pitchers that went south on me due to acclimation, everyone is very happy.
