    I stopped by a local garden shop that sometimes has N.alata on the way home, and I found this amazing Nepenthes:



    I'm now trying to identify it so I can take care of it properly. I'm thinking that it might possibly be N. fusca. Here are some links to pictures that look just like mine: (1) (2)

    What does everyone think?

    Well my browser managed to use the auto-fill out the topic, (after I typed it in correctly) :-/. This post has nothing to do with Nepenthes hirsuta. Oh well.

    Moderators: Please edit the topic to something more appropriate if you have time. Thanks.

    hmm not fusca... the lid is too wide, and the end of the leaf is not the right shape. I will have to ponder this one and look at some pics. Right now off the top of my head it looks like maxima x alata

    Nope not maxima x alata which you can see here: http://www.uq.net.au/intaac/ExoticaPlants/h72.htm

    Have to do some more thinking... fusca x something

    Could it not be Rafflesiana 'Elongated' ?

    That is kind of what it looks like to me. But I am by far, not the Nepenthes expert [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Would it be helpful if I included a picture of the leaf also?
