Nepenthes alata 'Rubrum' ???

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Anyone ever bought anything from Perfect Plants? They have sales on eBay also under a different name.

They are listing a suspicious looking Nepenthes alata 'Rubrum'. I cannot find this anywhere else on the internet. To my uneducated eye it looks like x ventrata.

Can any of you experts offer facts or opinions about this?

Thank you (~8

Karsty.

No facts, but anything that looks suspicious probably is.

Very "shady" ad with no background info and a bad quality pic. I have never heard of "rubrum" as a variation or cultivar or type of alata... stay away from it.

It seems that the RHS do not acknowledge the name Ventrata. They don't list it, but they do list alata x ventricosa. The name Ventrata has no presence on their entire website.
