    Hell-o everyone...

    I have a couple pix of a nepenthes my wife gave me a couple weeks ago and have been trying to ID it. I believe it's a hybrid, but would like to know from you experts, so I grow it correctly.

    Right now it's the same pot from the nursery. I have it hanging above my bathtub (with an 1" of water for humidity), directly below a skylight (plenty of sun). I've fed it 6 or 7 insects. It has 13 pitchers.

    I would like to post a picture on this site for help but I don't know how! Can someone explain how to post a picture, please?

    Thanks for your help!
    Steve

    You need to first upload it to a website. Then you copy the address of the photo. In the above right there is a button called image paste your pics address in there and you are set.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Did you get my last email Steve?

    If you haven't yet, check out the ID this Plant forum and have a look at some of the other threads on Nepenthes ID as well. Most garden center Nepenthes come from a big nursery in Europe or from a few producers here in the states so the potential possibilities are fairly limited. Odds are you will find someone posting a picture of your plant and asking for an id also.

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

    Tony - I sent you a picture through email on 10/22. Can you upload it for me?? I don't have a website to upload them to!

    Based on my research to date, I think it's one of the following:
    N. Miranda
    N. Alata
    N. X Ventrata, or
    N. X Ventricosa.

    Also, I got a response from a guy in Germany who said it was likely N X Mixta.

    Appreciate your help.....

    I will load it up for a few days. PFT also maintains some space for members to host pictures.. maybe the gang here can tell you how to do that as I don't use it myself.

    Here is the picture:

    oh btw.. deffinately not N. ventrata, ventricosa or alata.

    Since it's from a garden center it's probably a young N. Miranda

    Hey,

    It's definitely a N. x Miranda.
    I see the same pitcher style as the one that I have.

    Cheers,
