Hello Nepenthes crew :) . I recently bought this pitcher plant from my local nursery and I am unsure as to what cultivar it most closely resembles (I know it is technically a typical because it didn't come with a tag but knowing which cultivar it is most similar to will help me provide the correct conditions). Also, I know that most pitcher plants sold in Canada are usually nepenthes ventrata or x miranda. However, I can't easily identify this plant as either. Thanks in advance!

Actually, after doing a bit more research I think it is nepenthes x miranda or some derivative. It was hard to tell because it is juvenile. Let me know if you agree.

i cant tell you what it is but i can tell you it is not a miranda. I can make guesses from the shape but that dark color has me stumped.

Yeah I know it doesn’t look like a classical x miranda but I have it in a lot of sunlight and I’m not sure if juvenile pitchers more readily acquire red coloration.

Also, I think variety is the term to use. I’m used to hovering around the flytrap forums and using the term cultivar. But I don’t think x miranda or ventrata are cultivars but rather just naturally occurring varieties (and hybrids at that). Feel free to correct my terminology!

in lots of sun light miranda leaves would turn red

if i had to take a wild guess i would say it is a Spathulata x hamata via bugbitingplants

I definitely see some ventrosica in there, other than that I can only guess
