    Default Pitcher Plant - Open and say "Ahhhh"

    Someone was showing off their carniverous plants the other day, and I was recalling how I missed my pitcher plant. It died during a cold snap in the fall. The local hardware store had this pitcher plant hanging over a cymbidium covered with bugs. No tag...as usual...but I'll look around to find out it's name. I love the larger pitchers on this one.

    Question

    I looked all over the internet...the closest name I find is Nepenthes Mira. Are there any carniverous plant people on here that might be able to help me? I don't have a good picture of the hood, all of the pitchers are humidity starved and the lids are all browned and dry.

    A couple other views in case it will help with id....

    Connie, PM Kfir. He grows many different Nepenthes and might recognize it too.

    Cheers,

    I have a Nepenthes Gothica that resembles that plant. So that is my guess.

    Connie it is beautiful. Doesn't look like a US native carnivorous. Hope you get a positive ID. Keep up the humidity and the bugs!

    beautiful sarracenia, the north american pitcher plant.
