    I grow a Khasiana x Ventricosa and on the pitchers you have the slight inturned front of the mouth as in your photos and all so it has the light almost tiger stripes aswell its a very easy plant to grow aswell.I was wondering if i had a pure Khasiana how it would cope with being left out side all summer as the humididy and temps might be a bit low what sort of ranges do you think it could cope with?Im going to take a few snaps of it so you can see the khsaiana in the cross.

    trent,

    In regards to lid shape, when the pitcher first opens it appears dome shaped. When it completely opens it flares upwards. I don't think that would be a trait to base the answer on. I have seen pitchers on different plants labelled as N.khasiana with a domed lid or a flared lid.

    example found at:

    hi julian,

    thanks for your input. At least I can say that my plant is not a khasiana x ventricosa. However, In your photo the peristomes has not completely opened yet, and I am not sure how the 'V' shape develops in your lid. As I mentioned earlier, it has only been in the recent 4 pitchers that this has occurred.
    My plant does not exhibit the slight flared peristome and does not converge onto the lid like that. Pitcher shape is also different.

    My question is, that if the plant is grown outside without any protection at all, would this affect the development and shape of pitchers differently than to ones grown indoors or greenhouses?

    Does anyone have a mirabilis x khasiana or khasiana x mirabilis growing outdoors without protection?

    cheers,
    C
    That would be great for you to post up more pictures.

    Hi C
    good question about being inside or outside to see how development differs,ive not long put a Khasiana x Ventricosa outside to face the good old British elements.
    Will see if it looks different in a couple of months or 6
    I will add o photo a bit later.
    Bye for now Julian

    Here is a site I found with a PICTORIAL IDENTIFICATION MANUAL OF CITES PLANTS IN INDIA In relation to Khasiana. There is more information than I have quoted.

Female flowers carpels 3 4, ovary superior; ovules many, style 1, stigma discoid. Fruits elongated, leathery capsule. Seeds numerous, filiform.
    chesara,
    6 months may be the minimum in order for it to re-adjust. As I've said earlier I have been growing this plant for 5 years now and it is quite weird in its growth habits.

    -------------

    Treaqum,
    I guess we all get de-sensitised at some point.

    ---------------------

    Even in the male khasiana plant I have, some leaves alternate and some are parrallel as can be seen in earlier photos. This is the case for the female.
    A mate mentioned that fine hairs along the edge of the leaf blade are a trait of mirabilis. I have found this trait in other Nepenthes other than ventricosa.
    Does anyone have a Khasiana with these fine hairs along their edges with either a parallel or alternate terminating leaf blade?

    Here is a photo of the inflorescence.



    If anyone know of or has information about determining a plant species by their leaves, pitchers and inflorescence could you please post the relevant details. thanks.

    C

    I have a friend in India that tells me that they have many color variations of N. khasiana there and they even have male plants too! Someone told me that it is rare to find a male N. khasiana, anybody out there have a guaranteed male plant (purebred)?
    I have four forms of N. khasiana but are too small to show any details on it.

    Rainforest guy,

    I'm sure there are a few color variants, but it appears certain countries only have a particular clone when they were imported a while back. Are there any variations in pitchers and leafs?
    I believe the females are just as rare.

    juvenile photos are just as good to post as there aren't many.
