I need some ID.
I know the Nep is NOT ventricosa or ventrata.
I know the Ping with the pink flower is very common but not sure if its a moranensis sub. sp or agnata or ? the other ping I just don't know.
Help please?! thanks

first ping. look at the underside of the leaves and see if there are glands there. It looks very much like P. gigantea (member of angnatha group). the glands on the underside of leaves is the dead give away characteristic.

The second ping could be esserenia or pirouette. First could be Agnata True Blue. Nep could be a hybrid of glabrata and ventricosa or N. spathulata x mira. Do you know if it's highland, lowland, or intermediate?

i agree with Ping 2 looking like a Pirouette...
Ping 1 is an agnata or agnata hybrid of some sort, idk how your telling people they are wrong if you dont even know yourself.

the nep looks like khasiana hybrid of some sort..

SirKristoff, I fully agree with your whole post. I'm not a nep expert, but I'll take your word for it. I can almost guarantee the first ping being Agnata, especially due to the growth of the leaves from the center, but it's the points at the tips that leave me "confluzzled". Maybe a hybrid?

I love making skits-
Boss: Dr. Joe, bottled water specialist, please come to my office.
Joe: Hello sir! Is this about the water identification?
Boss: Yes. *brings out glass of water* My maid poured me a glass of water the other night and I would like you to identify which bottle it came from because I have no idea. Take a sip.
Joe: *takes sip of water* Hm, I think it's Fiji.
Boss: WRONG!
Joe: How could I be wrong? You said you had no idea which water it was, and I am a bottled water specialist! We're tasting the same water here, and I have the upper hand at identifying these waters. I don't see how you could just claim I am wrong.
Boss: That's it, you're fired!
Joe: B-but I don't work here.
Boss: Would you like a job here?
Joe: Boy, would I! Where's the paperwork?
Boss: You won't be needing it.
Joe: Why?
Boss: Because you're fired.

I know the 2nd ping is not pirouette because i have pirouette & its much too big to be esseriana which I also have. the first is not gigantea because i checked for the glands on the back of the leaf as suggested by the 1st reply. Please don't get defensive. It is easily possible to know what something is NOT even if you don't know what exactly it IS. I agree that the 1st ping is probably agnata or a agnata hybrid. The Nep could be a khasiana hybrid. Is anyone familiar with N. "x emmerene"?
and...thank you all for all of your input.
