    Is this the true N. burkei

    I got this plant labeled as N. burkei and was wondering if it was true form.









    Thanks, Max

    Looks like N. ventricosa to me...

    EDIT: Just did a search on this species and apparently it's very closely related to N. ventricosa and N. sibuyanensis. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of this species before, so thanks for the enlightenment!

    yes. ventricosa. N. burkei has a larger lid compared to ventricosa, has defineable wing ridges and a different pitcher color. Sorry its not the real thing

    I thought it was ventricosa too. Got to get a new label.

    Hi There:

    it's definitely ventricosa and a very expensive one.
