    Hello I have these 2 neps that are the same at least they look like it and I got them from the same place at the same time but any way I havent a clue what they are the guy at the store pointed me twards the plant book when I asked which was totally rediculous since it didnt even have Neps listed. Im sure it was pay back for me giving him and another guy some apparently rediculous advice on how they need to go outta thier way to get special water for them and quit putting those fertilizer bally things on the soil [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] oh well

    any way here are some pics I dont know if it is possible to identify but who knows it could be fun to try [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]



    I am the weirdo who sits next to you on the bus!

    I have one of those too. Mine was sold as a N. X "Coccinea" but is certainly not when you look at any hybrids with "Coccinea" like features. I believe it is a Nepenthes X "Mixta" hybrid between N. northiana & N. maxima.
    It grows well outside in bright shade but unless you are in a very humid area the pitchers will not develop (like most neps). It's said that the pitchers of Mixta will get a foot long (mine were the size of yours in the photos but due to the humidity fluctuations they have mostly all dessicated and new leafs are burning. I will move mine inside and into a lowland grow chamber at the end of august cos I know it'll do just fine there.

    Good luck with yours!

    BTW there's a photo of Mixta in the Savage Garden book by Peter D'Amato. http://www.********************.com (I hope nobody minds that link too much just wanna let the guy know where he can get the book)

    Looks like another Mixta to me as well.



    This is just a general comment for folks that are trying to ID unknown plants.

    Please label your plants as ID uncertain, possible Mixta. Or something like that. This way if the plant ID is incorrect it won't get spread around as something it isn't.

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