Hi. I purchased several plants from a local garden store under the impression that they were N.alata (the label in Japanese phonetically translates to Nepenthes). I left one in the pot it came in, and planted the other outdoors (my soil couldn't possibly have any less nutrients). Anyway, the potted one started pitchering after about a month. The other started pitchering just recently (four months later). You can see the first pitcher from this plant below (it's red).. The greener pitchers are from the potted alata (see the pot in the background ;-) ). Is this a different type of plant or a hybrid? It looks very different. Both plants receive the same amount of sun, and I water them at the same time.
