    Well? Is it, or isn't it?

    Looks a bit red?.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    Not trying to place any blame here, just curious.

    Thanks,

    The 2 on the left the same plant as the 2 on the right?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I'd guess it's Inermis, either that, or it's a Dubia. If those are lower pitchers then they could be inermis or dubia. i think, i'm not too familiar with lowers from dubia. If they are uppers, then it's definitely dubia. Again if they are lowers, they could definitely be Inermis, and they might be dubia.

    When in doubt, get it a paternity test. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Well guessing you upped your light levels? Lower pitchers can show some coloring in the brownish red. Doesn't look like the hybrid with N. bongso though which has a dark purple coloring, a broader peristome and purple flushing on the pitcher.

    'NepenthesMaster', there is one distinct morphological feature which tells you it's definitely not dubia.

    I have a very *green* Nepenthes inermis from Andreas Wistuba that has very faint hints of red on some of the larger lowers. The pitcher morphology fits all the published descriptions fine - just a tad more color than one might expect. It gets lots of full highland morning sunshine, and that will generally get the anthocyanins displayed to full effect ;>) I do seem to remember that Clarke mentions in his Sumatran monograph that some N. inermis pitchers show red in nature. Whatever it is, my plant definitely does not look like some of the richer-colored putative hybrids with N. bongso that have recently been posted here and, IMO, neither does yours.

    Be interesting to hear comments from the Nep-wallahs.

    Cheerio,

    SJ

    Thanks Tony,
    Yeah I did up the light levels inadvertantly. I figured you guys would know right away from the shape alone.
    Hmm, Now I'm curious how dark it could get to go...
    Thanks again guys, [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
