    Superimposed : I said I found a nep that LOOKS LIKE an alata. ...Well it does! Maybe Tony is right and it's because it's a young plant that the pitchers don't look what they should. I guess only time will tell.

    Tony : Well, it is an offspring of N.Alata after all, so I guess it was bound to happen. And I should apologise as well, you did answer my question in your first post (the reason I insisted is because I like precise data, like '73,32F is the ideal temp for nep W and nep Y, if they are in 23,4 cubic cm of soil no more dense x kg/m3 with humidity of 76,6%, see what I mean? Unnecesary details meant to please cracks like me.)
    And no worry, for now I won't try to escape the bug, I am perfectly happy to look at them every chance I get, all four of them (since they were inexpensive, I bought 2 of the mysterious ventrata/alata/venricosa/[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img], 5 if you count that one of those two has a tiny offshot 1 cm from it's main stalk, naturally that was the first I jumped on...=D )

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello,

    I noticed your in Montreal Canada. Welcome to another Canadian CP nut!

    Oh btw on that link you posted to the store, the aquarium on their main page is a picture of my snake tank.

    Something doesn't fit though...
    Ventricosa doesn't have a double-row of "hairs" on the front of it's pitchers...mine does, or at least at the "torso" part of them, and the really small ones have "hairs" on the top of their lid as well...
    What does that tell you?

    How big are the pitchers? Young N. ventricosa will have wings and hairs on the top of the lid. Sounds like your describing juvenile pitchers.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
