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.
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.

mylesg: i havent checked in here for a while, why does it seem all the CP forums have lost their once strong activity? the trade/sale section used to be so active and now its a ghost town. where is everybody hanging out these days for a strong online CP community?

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.
