    Hi, have some highlanders I need ID with, hope some here can help. I have a feeling they may be different variations of Sanguinea.

    Number 1

    Number2
    this one may be ramispina

    Number 3
    may be alata?

    there are more pics here


    So far these plants are not doing so well, I live in Singapore, lowland conditions...and I think the biggest hurdle in growing nepenthes in cooling the plants at night, right now I use ice which i put in icecream tubs above the plants and the cold air pours down, not an effecient method but the best I have. I am afraid of giving too much light as sunlight can burn quite badly at times... just hope they can acclimitise.....

    Number one, looks like a green N. sanguinea.

    The next one, a darker N. sanguinea.

    The third one, not sure looks like a lowland N. alata form to me.

    The second one is definitely N. sanguinea.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    thanks all for replies,
    well i think it is safe to say number 2 is Sanguinea, and number 3 is Alata(but definitely not lowland, it didnt like my lowland conditions...)? anyone opposes?
    How about number 3? spathulata X veitchi sounds good, but I'm not too sure...Sanguinea green? if that's the case I bought 3 different varieties of Sanguinea?!?! Any other views?
    thanks

    #3 is not N. alata. The strap shaped leaves are wrong and the shape of the pitcher is not correct. Most likely some sort of hybrid between N. sanguinea and [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] maybe N. macfarlanei??

    #1 is the most N. alata looking of the batch. What do the leaves look like? Is there a well defined petiole before the leaf margin expands?

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

    If it has some macfarlanei in it it'll have at least a few hairs under the lid. Pure sanguinea doesn't have any.
