    N. viking... right?

    Hello everyone! I traded a RO system for this nep a few years ago... Some pictures from it being a younger plant can be found here. I recently showed some new pictures to someone and he commented that it didn't look like viking to him but rather a hybrid. Anyone want to take a stab at it? Here are some pictures of the most current pitcher.
    Thanks!
    Andrew

    It looks like it may be a hybrid between N. 'Viking' and N. mirabilis.

    I agree, the peristome shows hints of mirabilis in it.

    i say Viking x bicalcarata, look at the stout pitchers and the peristome is pronounced where the fangs on bical are. Also, the growth of the plant and leaf shape is similar to bical growth

    Hmm, it can be very possible that it can be either N. viking x mirabilis or N. viking x bicalarata. I think it'd be best to label it 'N. x viking hybrid.'
