    I couldn't beleive it! I was at a local specialty nursery and they had N. alata (so it said, easily ventrata). These are full grown mature flowering Neps with all having 6 or more growth points and all originals still. They are $30 so I didn't get one but they were remarkably good lookin. Looks as if they have been taken care of, they do keep the humidity high in there. All pitchers were fresh lookin, no crispies.

    Amazing!

    Sounds like the 'N. alata' from Deroose. Which is most deffinately N. Ventrata. They supply large numbers of full sized Nepenthes to garden centers, home centers and some CP nurseries. Fantastic operation they must have to produce such large healthy Nepenthes at the price they do.

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

    I was at a little local nursery today and seen a huge N. rafflesiana (sp?) with 10 or more basal shoots all original with first shoot over 4'. $25. it was in terribly low humidity and didn't have any pitchers but the leaves looked good otherwise. Very green and healthy lookin. I didn't get it though.

    Earl May. Pretty sure. Though I only had a single dried pitcher to go by.
