Hello to anybody with ability to identify plants from photos, or at least offer very informed opinion: I have a few divisions of same clone of a variegated Nepenthes that I was informed quickly was species alata. I have not seen the plant bloom, and I know that both of the larger plants are divisions by cuttings from another plant. It tip growth propagates easily, lower stem cuttings propagation not so easy. I questioned whether-or-not it could be sp. alata because the two wings on the pitchers are reduced to one claw at the top for both wings (two claws near rim). Do I need to wait until one of the plants blooms to get a positive identification? This plant grows OK in both a temperate screen room (range 55-90 degrees F, and humidity 40-90% in screen room; range 45 -95 degrees F in greenhouse this last year, and 50%-100% humidity (has mist system). In time of electrical failures, range extended to 35 degrees F - 100 degrees F with no damage to this Nepenthes. Can provide photos, once I hear that this might be a fruitful exercise. Second subject: Have a plant which I believe came from Asian source to the former collector, and is labeled sp. eymae. From a cutting. I'd like to confirm species, once plant is tall-enough to produce both upper and lower pitchers. I'm new here, collect mostly orchid species of Central and South America, and California Native Plants. Have several varieties of Pinguicula, Mexican species, I'm told, a few Drosera, some small Utricularia, and 6 species, possibly 7 of Nepenthes. No particular interest in man-made hybrids - life too short and space too small. pmrorquideas
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.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
