I recently got my first pitcher plant and I’m really curious about what kind it is. It was sold to me as a Nepenthes Hookeriana but when I looked it up it didn’t look anything like the ones in the pictures, though I don’t know enough about it to say for sure. Thanks in advance for any input!

It looks like a Nepenthes x Ventrata to me ( although I'm no expert) . Still it is a very nice nepenthes and as a bonus N. x Ventrata is very vigorous if that is what it is. Good luck with your first Nepenthes and Good Growing!

Yeah I agree I think it’s 50% either Ventricosa or it’s hybrid nepenthes, Ventrata as mentioned. I also bought on from Lowe’s it either ventricosa or ventrata if you got it from Lowe’s, the brand is Gubler Orchid labeled as nepenthes Spp, nepenthes hybrid and the one I bought is the same size.
