    Hey PFT ppl

    I just found a cool Nep at the mall today and I bought it for 10 (a seedling not a big plant) but I need some help in identifying it. I don't have a picture, but I can tell you that it looks almost exactly like N x 'Tiveyi' only with black dots on the pitcher. It cost me &#3610 so I think it was worth it. I'll definitly post a pic of the big pitchers once the plant grows a little more. thanks

    Joel

    What type of nepenthes ventricosa do I have that came from pft ? I just got it two days ago and the ones I see in my book look really different . Mine was green , the book's was yellow . Mine had wings , the book had none . Mine had a lid with hairs on it , the book had none . Mine had the tendril on the side , the book had it on the rear end . What are the care instructions for it and what type of species is it .

    Every plant is not the same my friend. N.Ventricosa has wings when it is young. It will abort them when near maturity. Tendrils can form ANYWHERE on the pitcher but generally from the sides and back. Care instructions for N.Ventriocosa are the same for typical highland species.

    Don't start me off on that discussion again, or this will be a never ending battle-thread. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Does anyone know of a veitchii hybrid that produces a pitcher with a blue-green peristome and has black dots on the pitcher? That's the form of the pitchers of my unidentified Nep. It looks alot like tiveyi but with different colors.
