    Dont think it's miranda, mine has much more red spots on it without any hint of green on the pitcher. The pitcher bottom is round as well though this could just be an upper.

    #3 is from a greenhouse. its over 30yrs old. Not sure where it came from.

    Frenchy, when you say it "could just be an upper" what do you mean by that.

    That the pitcher in the picture is an upper pitcher of the Nepenthes, as Neps have lowers, intermediates, and uppers.

    So each pitcher just has a slightly different appearance based on how old it is?

    Er, kind of, I guess. When a Nepenthes is young and still its vine is still short, they produce pitchers that are suited to be on the ground. While the plant ages, the vine grows and grows, until the pitchers are lifted off from the ground. From there, the lower pitchers slowly develop its pitchers, one by one, to upper pitchers, which are designed to capture fly insect, I believe. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Edit: Also, the tendrils of upper pitchers tend to loop, like the one on your pitcher. That indicates it's probably an upper pitcher. How long is the vine of the plant?
