    Would these happen to be Hawaiian hybrids? If so, then that would make ID'ing much easier.

    All neps are native to the Philippines. For neps 1&2, pitchers are about 5 inches excluding the lid.

    Thanks

    So, assuming that they are all Phillipine species, then they could be any one of these:

    N. alata
    N. argentii
    N. bellii
    N. burkei
    N. copelandii
    N. deaniana
    N. mantalingajanensis
    N. merrilliana
    N. mindanaoensis
    N. mira
    N. mirabilis
    N. peltata
    N. petiolata
    N. philippinensis
    N. saranganiensis
    N. sibuyanensis
    N. surigaoensis
    N. truncata
    N. ventricosa

    Source: Wikipedia

    This is the point where I leave the actual identification up to the experts here at TerraForums.

    Thanks for posting

    I agree, I don't see N. Truncatas in any of the 5 neps. In fact neps 3,4&5 were labelled as Alatas, but the petiole and pitchers don't look like Alata to me.

    Jimmy, you have a good point. But I'm not fully excluding the possibility that some of these maybe species not included in the Philippine nepenthes list, because I think there may still be a few undocumented ones here. That's why most sellers here just label nepenthes as Alatas because that's one of the most common nep here.

    Do neps 1&2 look like N. Mindanaoensis?

    #4 Looks like veitchii to me...but I may be horribly wrong since I don't see any hair on it. :x Maybe spathulata? I don't know.

    #1&2 Look like N. clipeata. But I may be horribly wrong again. xD

    #5 Uuuuuuh....Raff? I don't know.

    I know all these aren't on the Phillippines List, but that's what they look like to me.

    Edit: I was looking in Wikipedia, and saw that #3 looks like N. philippinensis.
