    This is my second edit of this post. The more photos I look at, the more I am unsure whether my nep is a rafflesiana or a hookeriana. On the one hand, rafflesianas seem to have L-shaped peristomes, which my pitcher appears to have, or it could just be a rounded peristome at a steep incline. On the other, rafflesianas don't have the "hip" that my pitcher seems to display.

    My other nep, though, is still unidentified; either alata or ventrata.

    Thumbs up

    Colin, I think ebeyonder's Nep is a true rafflesiana. You rightly observed that rafflesiana does not have a 'hip'. As is clearly seen in ebeyonder's photos, the pitchers all do not have a 'hip'. You might want to send another closeup of one of your pitchers to this forum to verify its status. Try to get a photo of the spur behind the lid. I think that character might be important.

    Hybrids can be a bit tricky to identify because they have characters that are usually intermediate between the parents.

    Try to get the BP guide book on Carnivorous Plants of Singapore (about $5.00). There are enough photographic comparisons that should allow you to make a decision.

    Jalan Kayu - a very impressive collection indeed!
    me? - A variety of plants but mostly only nepenthes in the 'carnivorous' category.
    I personally grow them to enjoy watching/looking at them in a natural setting if possible. I'm not so interested in knowing whether it is a true N. rafflesiana or a hybrid etc. , so long as it grows well and looks good :- my own view only.
    I used an old fibre-glass waterfall to create a staggered 'cascading greenery'. Still only a few months old yet, it has around 5 different types of nepenthes with ferns and bromeliads etc. It is fascinating to peer between the ferns to discover new pitchers that weren't there the previous week.

    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.
    My pitcher gallery is at: http://community.webshots.com/user/neilsingapore
