hello, im curious about my recently bought nepenthes, the seller said it was N. Mirabilis x Eustachya. i tried searching online but can only find local people in my country has it, cannot find any from outside the country, is this a real hybrid or just marketing scam?

Take good care of it and let it grow. When it makes a good sized pitcher, just shoot us a picture.

It continues to grow a bit and puff up after the lid opens. Also tends to color up more

Honestly it does look like both parents. Shape of one and the coloring of the other. I'm going to go with yes myself.

i remember someone described this hybrid as big pitcher with orange colour, round lip of mirabilis and unique stripes of eustachya. maybe i should google mirabilis and eustachya...

also its flowering, maybe i should start a new topic about this, but since people are here, what should i do with it? i know they have female/male (but dont know how to id) and i only have 1 nep. i dont believe nep can do flower stalk propagation right?

I would first identify its gender(I don’t know how). Second, find someone that you are willing to ship some pollen to/is willing to ship pollen to you depending on the gender of your plant. Third, pollinate you’re plant with the pollen received if you’re plant is a female. Nepenthes cannot do flower stalk propagation.

Facebook has a couple groups for Nepenthes like that. Unfortunate about the seller. To identify the flowers it's weird, best to look up a side by side so you can see what it looks like.
