    I was going to say N. Miranda for the first one, too; but that was just my first impression and I lost my nerve when everyone else was saying N. maxima... lol.

    1 and 3 are both 'Miranda'. Absolutely no doubt about it.

    'Miranda' has no varieties, it is a cultivar so all clones a the same, genetically.

    So how could 1 and 3 be miranda if the outside of their pitchers are completely different colors?

    Picture 3 looks to be an upper pitcher, so morphologically different.

    From what I read about 'Miranda' there were several crosses of this floating around when Deroos originally started mass producing them it's just the name they gave to the hybrid. Eventually they came to one cultivar because they stopped circulating the other genetic crosses and we're left with the one mass produced one. If you found this in an old green house, it could be one of the other original cross plants.

    X is correct. You are comparing an upper to a lower that is why they look different.
