I bought this little plant at a local store. It was $10 and it finally produced a pitcher. I don’t think it resembles my Ventrata. The leaves are a dark red, the pitchers have those filament hairs… plus it’s a fair amount redder.

I would not say lady luck. I would say nepenthes Rebecca Soper. A big deep peristome would be a giveaway for Lady luck. The ampullaria heritage comes through very well and lady luck tends not to blush easily. Rebecca soper also has a mid waist taper whereas Lady luck is straight top to bottom when they are closer to matu

Thanks. As with Panman, I thought you were joking at first. Maybe I’ll call it a Nepenthes Scratch-Off :roll:

Thanks, don’t you think that if it were an out of the norm variety the grower would’ve shipped it with an ID tag? I would assume so.
