Whats the Difference? Do You Know?

Kennith(10b CA)August 23, 2008

I just received a Nepenthes Velvet and a Nepenthes Miranda this week(both very large/beautiful)from two different vendors on Ebay. Are they both the same plants??? They look so much alike and silimar to an "eye of a novice." Have I been bamboozled?

With Most respects,

I only own a young miranda but the difference i would think is the hybrid, do you have pics of both plants?
