My new Ant Plant

Plant
While on the hunt for N. Ventrata and N. Miranda at my local nursery I stumbled upon some ant plants and decided to take one home.The Plant was labelled as being Myrmecodia beccarii, but I'm not too sure that's correct? I have my suspicions it may not be a Myrmecodia at all, but a Hydnophytum due to how the leaves are growing on those long stems, but If anyone has any hints as to the identity I'd love to hear!

H.papuanum is now renamed with the new taxonomic revision H .moseleyanum. ;)

very nice plant

for me they are 2 different plants, in particular because of the hole on the caudex for one and not for the other

Does anyone have any recommendations for fertilizer? I have a 0.2/0,2/0.2 orchid spray that I might try, but If there's a better option I'm all ears.

So we had to zip out to a greenhouse in rural Manitoba (our farms out by Portage for the Manitobans on here) and picked up 4 a week ago.
They had H.papuanum, H. puffii, M. beccarii, M. selebicum. I wonder if they were from the same supplier. You can probably tell from the pots and tags in my pics below. Also, I think your correct on the H.papuanum ID.

when I first got it there were no tags :( just a sign that said "Myrmecodia beccarii - Ant Plant", but when I was there last, they had labels that looked exactly like yours!

It looks great potted in the bonsai pot. I was thinking it would be cool to display in a round bonsai pot once large.
Your photo of the flower got us looking and it turns out our H. puffii has a teeny tiny flower! :)
