Found these handsome lovelies at Sloat Garden Center up here in San Francisco, CA and was wondering if anyone can identify the Nepenthes in these hanging pots? Also, if anyone can tell me what brand/supplier these are coming from because I also see the same tagged plants at other garden stores. When I see these bright orange tagged cps, I also see them amongst other cps with tags from AG3 but I do not see AG3 on any of these particular plant labels.

The only photo that is showing is the last one; judging by color of the leaves and what plants are likely to be found in garden centers, I'd say that one is N. "Rebecca Soper" (ramispina x ventricosa)

The pictures are working now, and it's definitely not "Rebecca Soper." Now that some mature pitchers are visible I'm sure [MENTION=9012]hcarlton[/MENTION] can give you an ID pretty easily as he's our resident Nepenthes expert.

I could not possibly call myself an expert, especially when it comes to complex hybrids since several species can result in similar crosses, but this one looks like a more simple cross; now that I've seen the pitchers though I hazard a guess to be spathulata x spectabilis. It certainly has spectabilis in it.

AG3 just got back to me. They said it looked like their Nepenthes sanguinea?!?!?

Uhhh, I'm not the best expert but am I wrong to say that this doesn't look very sanguinea like? I've never seen one with a striped peristome...

Nepenthes sanguinea can certainly have a striped peristome, though this plant looks nothing like one. This wouldn't be the first time I've heard of AG3 giving someone a completely incorrect ID on a plant so it doesn't surprise me.

Oddly I come in again and the photos are down, all but the last one....anyway, it's definitely not sanguinea. At that age the peristome would be barely more than a rounded lip, pitchers would be somewhat bullet-shaped, and there is no sanguinea I have ever seen with strong patterning, or truly denotable stripes (they can be present on some of the darker forms but are very muted or washed out, and otherwise show up due to hybridization, same with the pattern).

My N. sanguinea "orange" actually has an interesting patchy pattern on the peristome, though I wouldn't call it stripes. There are some pictures on cpphotofinder of sanguineas with actual stripes (assuming they are labeled correctly,) though none as prominent as this plant.

The first two pictures disappeared again for me as well.

As for the tags, I'm only aware of one CP nursery that uses tags like that and they don't supply any non-local retailers to my knowledge. Not being labeled as a specific species or hybrid, if that is the original source then it was sold as a "poi dog" unknown hybrid and I doubt they would know exactly what it is either.
