    Well, I made an edit, and I guess you posted while I did, but yours seems to have uppers. IMO, it's easier to identify Nepenthes by lowers than uppers, but I guess that's because no one hardly ever need IDs for ones that make uppers since they already have an ID. :x

    Capensis is correct Peat. Though age doesnt stop a plant from creating lowers. As the plat climbs it adapts to supports pitchers which will not be suited to sit on the ground, they will look different then those pitchers suited for the ground and are called uppers. The lowers can still be formed by the plant as it sends out basals. The basals are still attached to the mother so it is the same plant but it can be separated from the mother into another individual plant which can repeat the process. As capensis said, uppers tend to have tendrils that will coil more so then lowers, but I have a miranda in my collection that has coiled lowers before.

    Hey

    Heres my guess

    1.N miranda at most i am wrong it would be a N mixta
    2.N.Alata
    3.N miranda again..
    Leaves of the plant will help to differenciate miranda and maxima...But i'm confident its a miranda..Cos there is no long thingy at the tip of the lid..But on some lowers of miranda they do have a short and stout nub on the end of the lid...(maxima parentage)

    Ken
    Well i have a growlist her but anyways heres mine in another forum.
