    Hello again! Thank you very much to all that ahve helped me in this Nepnethes-name-finder. you will never know how importanti thisi s to me, i am in love with my Nepenthes::

    Now, we have clear about N. Sanguinea & N. Rafflesiana. But about N. Ventrata well, i am posting frontal pics, to se if that can help. Sorry if the pics are too dark, I hope it can help.




    And about the 4th one. I havejust found theinvoce when i bought this one and it sais "Nepenthes x Dominii" Can anybody tell me is N. x Dominii is the same than "Nepenthes gracilis x rafflesian"?

    Thank you very, very much,
    Jorge Joel...

    Ahh.. I forgot to say. The lids of the N. Ventrata are always almost closed, or dropped. Do this give you a hint to ID it?

    Thanks again,

    Maybe it's some kind of mutation... none of my ventrata lids droop, and even if they did I don't think they'd be that wide.

    Hello Endparenthesis! So you think it is a Ventrata, but with a mutation? Do you, or anybody else, know how this can happen?

    I am very curious about his now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    True Dominii is gracilis x rafflesiana. There is some confusion about Dominii, it was the first man made Nepenthes hybrid in 1862 at the Veitch Nurseries. There was confusion with plants of rafflesiana x hirsuta also called Dominii 'Intermedia', made in 1875. Your photo is a dead ringer for an illustration from the Journal of the Royal Hort. Society vol. 21 1897- as real Dominii (gracilis x rafflesiana).

    It looks like you have a ventricosa, but again, the photo is not the clearest and the plant needs to get a little larger. Droopy lids are not a mutation, could be humidity/water requirements - or simply a plant with floppy lids, which is okay.

    Hello everyboby!

    Trent, what do you mean with "Your photo is a dead ringer for an illustration"?

    And about my Ventricosas' lid, you say it can humidity / water requirements, is is possible that it is too much h/w? He in PR we have had too much nain in the las months and humidity is always between 65% and 90%. I must tell you that all of my Ventricosas have the same wide and droopy lids. So what you say make much sense to me.

    You have the real Dominii, "dead ringer" means "identical".
