Got the plant from CZ plants. Got both N rajah x veitchii as well as N robcantleyi x veitchii over a year ago. They looked similar from the word go, except the one supposed to be the rajah cross was larger. Same leaves, same juvenile pitchers as the smaller one grew... Emailed CZ. No reply.
Now the one supposed to be rajah x veitchii is growing a new pitcher that looks like a veitchii golden peristome with robcantleyi splotching on the inside - it is still darkening up, but I can't see even a hint of rajah. Leaves are somewhat truncate, as opposed to the rajah like leaves of the rajah x veitchii cross I see on the internet. No red peristome or outside of pitcher so far - which seems typical for the rajah x veitchii even as smaller plants.
Will wait and watch, but can't help but think I got scammed by CZ plants. Hardly seems like a genuine mistake at this point given that I had purchased both plants, so they would be side by side when packing. More importantly they are ignoring emails and probably don't want to do further business with me. When I made other purchases on their site, they emailed me saying all plants on my list were unavailable.
What does one do in a situation like this? Apart from the obvious of confirming ID as plant grows further and correcting it at least in my collection...
From the sound of it, they would prefer me to simply accept the wrong ID plant of much lesser price and shut up. Which I probably would have, if they had honestly acknowledged the mistake at least.
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: 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.
