My local garden store has some young Nepenthes that are roughly 3” for $18 US. These are unidentified, but they also carry some large Ventrats. Would you folks gamble on better variety? Just asking for input.

A ventrata will vine out six feet or more, and many other hybrids will go more than that.
Right now enough space for another plant, but I have two spectabilis x robcantleyi that are growing rather quickly and my Ventrata has grown about 5” in the last month. My biggest concern is identifying it.

I ended up buying it. She ended up selling it for $11… it’s brighter red than my Ventrata so maybe it is something a little more interesting.

There was an interesting sticker on the pot. A black and white illustration of a cat’s face. Maybe it’s an independent grower.
