    Unhappy

    I ordered two neps on Sep 11th and received them today finally.
    I ordered a N. ventricosa and a N. rafflesiana.

    Upon receiving and looking at them, I have to say they are both ventricosa. The plants were not labeled at all.

    Can someone please help distinguish them for me or tell me if they are the same species. If they are the same then I have to contact them to ship me the correct plant and also my 20 missing white plant tags.

    Here are the two Neps in my terrarium:

    Thanks.

    you definatly need to contact them and get yourself the N. rafflensiana you ordered and your ventricosa because those two plants look like they are N. ventrata, a hybrid of N. ventricosa and N. alata

    Immature N. ventricosa can look like that. So I would reserve judgement on that. The leaves look like N. ventricosa. Deffinately no N. rafflesiana though.

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

    I think both are N ventricosa.
    I ordered such young neps fr Malesiana some time back, and the pitchers are very similar to yours.

    Ditto.Both are ventricosa. I would call them and get this little mess up fixed. They are usualy very good but nobody is perfect...
