    Someone gave me this plant as a bedraggled little thing to nurse back to health (she had bought it out of town and the flight back had been very hard on the plant). I blame my success entirely on the plant's hardiness. The pitchers are around 2" high, and the plant currently has 6 of them concealed in all its foliage, plus a tiny one on a new rosette emerging on the other side of the pot.

    Looks like N. ventricosa, though maybe with a bit of N. alata or N. sanguinea. Prolly is a hybrid.

    I agree. Looks like a ventricosa hybrid.

    Ah yes, the one that looks like x 'Emmarene' but isn't (apparently). Those plants are usually sold as N. tobaica, but is obviously a hybrid with that species as one of its parents.

    Concur with Amori. It's the ventricosa-khasiana-tobaica hybrid sold as tobaica.

    Thanks for the responses. Now I just need to make a label or something so I don't forget...
