    Uh.. not to be totally off topic with these posts, but the smallest US demonination is one cent. The name of that coin however is called a penny! The ONE CENT on the backside isn't the name of the coin but is designating it's value.

    And since I know you're curious..
    Penny Composition
    Years Mass Diameter Composition
    1864 to 1942 3.11 g 19 mm 95.0% Copper and 5.0% Zinc & Tin (bronze mix)
    1943 2.70 g 19 mm Steel with Zinc coating
    1944 to 1946 3.11 g 19 mm 95.0% Copper and 5.0% Zinc & Tin (bronze mix)
    but made from cartridge casings and slightly off color
    1947-1962 3.11 g 19 mm 95.0% Copper and 5.0% Zinc & Tin (bronze mix)
    1963-1982 3.11 g 19 mm 95.0% Cu and 5.0% Zinc
    1983-2002 2.50 g 19 mm 97.5% Zinc and 2.5% Copper (20% lighter)



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

    Very nice! I too say it`s a hybrid and going by the peristome I`d say it`s ventricosa x something with a flared peristome maybe ventricosa x(xmixta)?

    I think you're all nuts. It's a straight ventricosa that isn't quite mature. I'd bet at least 3 cents!

    I'd say it is definitely a hybrid. Vent red X alata (whatever variation is closest to red)/
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
