    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 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.
