    Hey all,
    I recieved 5 nep cuttings about 6 months ago. None of them had tags. 3 of them are producing pitchers now. 1 is still too small to ID, but here are the other 2.
    I think this one is a maxima but I am not sure....It just opened so it hasn't colored up all the way yet.

    I think this one is a miranda upper, I think....Also can anyone ID the non carnivorous plant next to the second pitcher? That popped up in an empty pot.

    Hi Ron,
    Your first pic could be a maxima hybrid. The second pic is not a Miranda. It looks like a hybrid also. Any clues for us - highland growing? heat lover? Easy? Where did you get the 5 cuttings? The leaf and growth habit can also help id them. At this point, they could be anything.
    The second pic could be a sanguinea hybrid or even reminds me of a N. madagascarensis, except it's too red. Sorry, the id is not jumping out at me. Have you tried asking the source where you got the plants?

    I got the cuttings from a member on here who lives about 3 miles away [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Back in January he was cleaning out his greenhouse and invited me over for a trade. I haven't seen him on here in a loong time. I did find his email address though. maybe I'll send the pics to him.
    I have them growing in my lowland setup. 70 to 85 degrees, 95 percent humidity.

    I'll post pics of the whole plants later.

    Yes, we remember the post on the trade forum. He had a bunch of beautiful Nep hybrids and species. I think both of the Neps you have pictured are hybrids, in which case, the leaf and growth habit won't help too much in getting an id. The best we could do is guess. It couldn't hurt to try and ask the dude who gave you the cuttings.

    The other non carnivorous plant in the second pic looks like it could be a Hoya.

    Re: the non-carnivorous plant, maybe a Dischidia?
    T.
    Edit, forget that, I was thinking D. bengalensis, but I'd only ever seen a dried one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
