Hello forum members Carnivorous plants int tropics, i need your help to identify a Nepenthes that for years is grown in Brazil without knowing whether it is a pure species or a hybrid.
Many call it N. x arakawae 'Green', but frankly it has nothing to do with the famous cultivar created behind times in Japan Below i eave a picture of it so that they can better express an opinion on this subject:
I don't think N. x arakawae is a cultivar. It isn't registered at the ICPS, and the Japanese hybrid names such as N. x Rokko don't refer to individual plants, but rather grexes (groups of sibling seedlings). With that in mind, how do you know that it is not, in fact, N. x arakawae? I know the photos of N. x arakawae on CP Photofinder don't resemble the photo you posted, but that doesn't exclude the possibility that both plants come from the same grex.
mikulas: there was a long FB discussion about this plant, and it was settled that it is, in fact, N. x arakawae, just not the red clone that I am personally suspicious of actually being that parentage...and a similar plants showed up elsewhere on FB with the same ID question, except on the opposite side of the world
Thank you for helping friends, i confess i did not expect this plant an evergreen morphotype N. x arakawae. I always found it different from the red form of this Nepenthes, it seems the most common as you can see in the picture below:
For 2 billion years the earth "lived" without humans, do not think she needs us.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
