    Nepenthes compacta?

    Hi everyone!
    I recently bought a nep labled "Nepenthes Compacta". As i have never heard of this species or hybrid before i did some reaserch on the net but found nothing
    Could someone help me out here?

    I grow all my neps outside, so Im hoping this isnt a lowland plant as my conditions here in Melbourne are far from ideal for these

    Although the plant seems healthy it has no pitchers, just tendrils. I will post a pic of the plant tomorrow if that might help

    I saw a listing for "Nepenthes Compacta" on fleabay from a seller in Austraila named "lsf_bootz", and the plant they are selling is just plain old N. Ventrata. There is no such thing as "Nepenthes Compacta". They made up the name.
