    Beagle:

    You have a nice plant, but i guess the senior members of this forum are right. So try to get the real Cantley's red or your money back. It is infuriating when pseudo-nepenthes growers try to swindle you.

    It is probably a tricolor ampullaria. That is what it looks like after going here: http://www.humboldt.edu/~rrz7001/Nepenthes.html

    It's a great place for photos.

    That is still a rare plant, based on what I've seen.

    CORRECTION:It was sold to me as a "Cantley's Red Tricolor."

    I get confused because he also sold me a real "speckled amupllaria."

    Well, either it's a cross, or I was misrepresented to. Here's the deal, it's not a small enterprise. You would know. I don't want to jump to conclusions.

    I like the plant, but accurate labeling is sort of important.

    Well I sure hope it turns out to be N. ampullaria 'Tricolor' (note it is not Cantley's red tricolor since there is no such thing.) I don't know where you got it but if you would like to PM me your source and costs I will be happy to continue this conversation more privately. I am certainly not trying to accuse anyone of misdeeds but all I have to go on is my first hand experience with the N. ampullaria in question and the photo you posted. And right now it doesn't match N. Cantley's Red OR N. ampullaria Tricolor.

    It is possible your plant is N. ampullaria Tricolor with lousy color because of cultural conditions. I am still skeptical though. I am most interested in seeing pictures of future pitchers.

    (Maybe the labels got mixed up somehow and the picture you posted is of the speckled one and not Cantley's Red or Tricolor?)

    For reference here is a picture of N. ampullaria Tricolor




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

    Hi,

    please be careful condamning a seller prior to giving him a chance to clarify the situation!

    We've seen some errors made by accident which were discussed on this forum. You might search for N. clipeata, N. faizaliana or N. argentii for example. A good seller will always replace the plant or refund the money in case he made a mistake!

    Cheers Joachim

    I have a original Cantley's and it looks similar to Joachim's, in a West window that does not get much direct sun.
    I have to say, though, that Beagle's plant is remarkable still. I have never seen a speckled amp with that kind of base pitcher color. I would not mind know ing where you got it, if you would PM me.

    Regards,

    Joe

    My bad. I posted before I saw the second page of posts. That is a tricolor? I would think it still should be redder, as a cantley's would.
    It still looks like something new to me.

    That looks like a N. ampullaria 'tricolor' to me. They can go that way if they have been overfertilized or kept in the wrong light levels.

    It can't be a Cantley's red because it doidn't look like a toadstool to me at first glance [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Most of the red N. ampullaria in cultivation at present isn't of the same clone as Cantley's red which tend to have more green on them and the pitchers also tend to be a different shape.
