    Thank you, though I can hardly take credit for how nice it looks; I've only had it for a couple of days.

    I am now 99.9% sure that these are not Nepenthes tobaica. Most of the large ones no longer look anything like N. tobaica, but that raises the question: What ARE they?





    All three plants above are from the same pod and are about the same age. As you can see, they are extremely variable, not only in the pitchers, but in the leaves as well. (Leaves are different lengths and widths, but are similar overall). These are lowland for sure, if that helps narrow it down.

    (Sorry for the blurry pictures, it's not very easy to focus on something that small with a junk cell phone camera.)

    Aside from that aberrant squat pitcher, they're definitely tobaica hybrids. But it's fruitless to try and put a name to the rest of the parentage, since they could be the product of introgression (gracilis, mirabilis, reinwardtiana: take your pick).

    I'd lean toward hybrids with reinwardtiana or mirabilis, but that fatter one certainly throws everything out the window. You have some nice "Poi Dogs" now
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    If I had to make a guess, I'd say they're probably either crossed with longifolia or adnata. N.tobaica is fairly widely distributed throughout Sumatra so there are unfortunately many possibilities here, particularly if more than 1 seed pod is involved.
