    Uppers and Lowers (Photos?)

    Is there a photo gallery anywhere, showing the comparison of upper pitchers and lower pitchers, of commonly kept Neps? You know, something that looks like this:


    If there isn't a photo gallery around . . . it should be started on this thread . . .

    You can find pics of both lower and upper pitchers of most species/crosses in the CP Photo Finder, but I'm fairly certain there's no collected database of such a thing for said purpose.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Might be worthwhile to start a photo thread here for that exact purpose. It certainly would make purchasing decisions for nepenthes easier.

    Wikipedia has quite a few (maybe not side by side though).

    Not the most reliable of resources.

    Books are probably your best bet if you want easy to locate and reliable pictures for pure species, though some species have so much variability that the full range can't really be covered. As for hybrids...even CP Photo Finder doesn't have both uppers and lowers for all of them.

    I'm by no means even a Nep novice, but there's an app out on Google play that shows pics of lowers and uppers for species plants. How accurate it is, I revert you to the first sentence.
