    Nobody else has any ideas?

    Perhaps this should be moved to ID forum...

    Hard to say but it looks like it has N. maxima influence in it to me. It could very well be one of gubler's infamous N. x gentle plants. So far, most of their plants have tunred out to be N. x gentle.

    Oh yeah, one of gublers two maxima hybrids. One, I know is N. x mixta, and is a real beaut. The one you have, I am unsure of it's parantage, but it looks similar. The leaves will develop very little red in them, and the pitchers stay mainly green with some red streaks. The peristome colors up eventualy as well. You should go back to the store you got it from, and try to find the N. x mixta [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !

    Well, what does it look like when its small...distinguishing features? Not to sure what you mean by red streaks, but the photo that came with it showed an almost yellow pitcher with red veins running down it.

    Is that what you are talking about?

    Well, as far as coloration for nepenthes and sarracenia go, only sarracenia have coloration in the form of vaination (the color in the pitchers is formed by a network of vein like streams). But, in Nepenthes, coloration is in spots/streaks, orrepresented by individual cells, and with no particular pattern. A spooted nepenthes-

    a sarracenia with veins-

    See how the sarracenia has red on it, and kind of looks like veins? Hope that clears it up.

    Yup, but thats exactly how the picture looked, only less dense.

    That doesn't mean the veins won't be slightly darker then, does it? At least that how mine looks in person.


    This one was $4.57
    I saw one that had large spots(and the pitcher was almost as big as the wee thing, and it wasnt even open!) but I skipped it.





    Everyone seems pretty lost. Anything I can do, like get more photos? Notice how the pitcher is missing a chunk of the wing. This second pitcher is missing almost all of it except the very top of one side and the very bottom of the other. It isn't completely open yet, though.

    Maybe Gublers neps should just be Nepenthes x 'Gubler'

    The reason everybody seems lost is that it is almost impossible to tell what the plant is at this early stage. You have to wait to get more mature pitchers before making even a semi-accurate ID. All people can do now is make educated guesses, based on experience and previous purchases.
