    Hello. On July 1st, I recieved a N. inermis from a nep nursery in Canada. Since then, it has produced a pitcher. Looking at the pitcher, I am kinda thinking its one of the hybrids from malaysiana. Can anyone conferm this?

    It has a red tinted lid, striped peristome, red tinted wings, red spots in the pitcher, and a red band under the peristome. Here are some pics:

    Side view, you can see the spots (which are on the insides of the pitcher) and the red tinted lid.

    The other side. You can see the red spur, red band under ther peristome and redness on the wings (these are more pronounced in real life).

    A shot into the mouth. You can see the red stripes on the peristome and spots in the insides of the pitcher.

    Zongyi,

    That mild striping on the peristome is identical to the ones I have from Malesiana, which, based on current information, is a single clone of inermis x bongso. It is likely that, as they mature, the pitchers will gradually become more purple.

    Much better pictures Zongyi. Have you talked to the place you got it from yet? I agree after viewing these it is not pure N. inermis.

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

    The peristome gives it away its not a pure species. Typical inermis have a peristome like this (on lowers) [img]http://home.**********.com/users/nepenthesgracilis/inermis.JPG[/img] A slight bronzy tint to reddish tint is normal, but the striped peristome on yours in not inermis linked.

    Peristome isn't right, i'ts not an inermis. If it's a hybrid, then i'd say that it has Inermis heritage though.

    Sorry, Zongyi, I also think everyone is right. Funny though, the N. inermis x bongso we have is deep dark purple all over, nothng like your plant. I'm wondering about the parentage of what you have there. 1/2 inermis to be sure but father may perhaps have been a drifter from out of town!

    It looks like that the Inermis mother was very promiscuous [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
