    My mystery Nepenthes

    Ok, so, I bought this one a couple years ago as N. aristolochioides. However, I'd like to get everyone's opinion on what it may actually be.

    Maybe an aristo hybrid?

    Hmm.... Looks like it might have a bit of N. aristo in it because of the angle the mouth is at. But the first time I saw it also looks kinda like my N. gymnamphora (the coloring, the dead pitcher's shape).

    I hope you find out what it is.

    You might want to look over here and examine the photos in this thread:

    Then compare the key elements of the plant to yours.

    The pitchers are a little elongated like those of N. klossii. Maybe a hybrid of the two?

    Looks like a N. aristolochioides hybrid but with what?

    Any other information on it? You might want to send some pictures to person you got it from. They may know what some other possibilities might be based on other plants they had at the time.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I'm no expert, but I'm thinking it may be N. thorelii x aristolochioides.

    That would be a good guess Jimmy and the direction I was leaning also. The look of plant and pitchers certainly fit with that hybrid more than any of the other N. aristolochioides hybrids that I can think of.

    Here is a photo of a lower pitcher on one of mine.
