    It's funny that it's labeled as a N. alata and has a picture of a N. ventrata on the tag, and the plant looks like neither.

    I water it every 2-4 days, I only just watered it as I took the picture .I water it from the top, untill the water starts coming out the bottom. It is in my room, it gets almost no sunlight, and the temp is around 13c. it stays like that no change. No humidity, and yet its thriving. Growing faster than the one in my kitchen which gets some filtered sunlight
    How big will it grow to? I dont particularly want a small nepenthes And, is there serveral plants growing in there?

    as far as I know there are only a few neps that do not get big. Some get bigger than others faster though. I wish I could find a nep like that listed at alata at the local garden center. I would buy it. Not sure what it is but looks nice and it surely is not what is on the label.

    I agree that it could very well be N. hookeriana. Still, not a bad plant! - Rich

    Thanks, is it a highlander or lowland? Not that it matters as it does really well in my room

    That would be a lowlander, as both parents (N. rafflesiana and N. ampullaria) are both lowlanders. N. hookeriana is a natural hybrid of these two plants. - Rich

    Looks to me to be two, probably three growth points.

    I had another thought....
    There are two companies distributing tc neps, that I know of. Agristarts has sanguinea, rafflesiana, ventricosa, Judith Finn and I think, madagascariensis.
    The company that produces the mislabled N. alata tc neps(DeRroose) in The Netherlands, also produces some others, including Miranda, Gentle and....Coccinea. It did not make me think of a Coccinea, but seeing who the label is from and what they make...what do you think?

    Hope this is okay posting this, as it's a wholesaler only. Also, IIRC, their tobaica is also wrong. I think the thought was(last I heard) that is was a khasiana hybrid.

    Cheers,

    Joe
