    I was in the nursery again today and my fiance spotted this. I had to buy it, you know?
    It looks like N. ventrata.
    The price was right too....only $20. Looks like they just got it in too, nice and fresh, no dried pitchers or nuthin.

    The plant is about 10 inches high and has 2 basal shoots growing out of it. The leaves/petioles are 12 inches long, not including the tendrils and pitchers. The largest pitcher is about 6 inches long.

    Nice ventrata.

    KCC: How do you know the plant is an amp or bical? Never seen anything like that at a home improvement store...

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I seriously doubt that it is a bical or ampullaria... just probably some immature pitchers that look like other plants

    I'll bet it's from Gubler's or Nurseryman's Exchange. Nurseryman's Exchange is the supplier who labels everything as a ''cobra lily" and Gubler's sells unlabeled hybrid neps. I have a "N.x Gubler" and am waiting for a pitcher on it to grow out before I can I.D. it.

    Heres a pic of the tag that came with the plant. It came from the "cobra lily" people. At least it wasn't labeled as a cobra lily.
    Front view...

    Now look at the back side. Pay attention to the continuing care instructions...they must think it really is a temperate plant.

    LOL! I never knew about that 40 degree winter dormancy for my neps! I think I'll give that a try. Or not.
