Hello all,

It has been quite some time since I have been active and this is simply due to life getting in the way.

I use to have a massive collection of Carnivorous plants several years ago, but sadly lost majority of my plants to the relentless Australian summer heat. I am however, hoping to reinstated my collection to its once former glory! but over the years I have lost some of the labels and require ID if possible.

Nepenthes 1

Sorry for having to provide links, I was unable to upload the images.


Kind regards

They are both something that leans toward maxima in my opinion. Its always interesting to see what you can just buy in other countries.

Unfortunately, unless you had species, they will likely have to remain NoIDs. Too many hybrids out there. Do you recall from whom you got them? Perhaps they could give you an idea.

When I said "grow those" I meant if you could remember growing those species before losing the labels ,they do look like maxima especially the second that looks like it may have the lump under the lid,something about the first looked similar to the boschiana I grow when the pitchers were smaller ,can be difficult to id especially if hybrids are a possibility

The first has similarities to the common European clone of N. Gentle (also called N. Velvet in the US), second is a maxima hybrid, but without a known origin and fully formed mature pitchers to reference off of (mature leaves are also helpful), as DragonsEye said NOID is the best you should label it.
What I can say for certain though: the first is not boschiana, 2nd has a very low chance of being pure anything.

Thank you everyone for your suggestion's. It was far too long ago for me to remember where I got them from, therefore, without a certain ID, I will simply just leave them as No ID. Thank you.
