    THAT LOOKS LIKE N. VENTRICOSA!
    Anyone else agree?

    Yours looks much different from the ones i've seen. Most of them looks like RamPuppy's.

    Here is a photo, the pitcher of it is on the right.


    Rampuppy's xGubler (the red one).

    These 2 above look the same except the other one is purple. Probably because it's older.

    Excellent picture tim! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The plant looks similar to my ventrata, albeit smaller. It looks like it's very happy with you. Keep up the good work.

    BTW: Nice parrot, is it guarding your plant? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I have a few green martians protecting my N bicalcarata from all the birds around here.

    Statik2426: I'm not sure whom the pictures are from (Rampuppy?) and I don't know if the colour of your pictures represent the plant's colours exact - but judging from the picture on my monitor the smaller nepenthes on your second picture is VERY low on nutrients. If it isn't already already done I would suggest try feeding the pitchers. The yellow colour on the older leafes won't disappear but the new ones should get bright green.

    Thats Rampuppies Rafflesiana.. Probably lighting from the flash. My camera does that. I doubt Ram has any dying plants.

    Here's my theory on unknown nepenthes, whether they be from Gubler's or Little Pot of Horrors: These plants are packaged and produced in an area of Florida where most of the horticultural businesses in the state are located. One of the mass market producers of nepenthes is located here and, not surprisingly, their cp show up a lot of the pots and terrariums sold at Lowe's and Home Depot. They only produce a small number of nepenthes, so the options from Gubler's and Little Pot are limited. The most common nepenthes being produced are ventricosa, xJudith Finn, and alata/ventrata (the TCer has a few strains of alata, at least two of which are actually ventrata). The point is, most of the 'unknowns' are probably one of these. That helps to narrow things down a bit.

    The second pic to me just looks like a nep in high light levels.
