    I've had this Nep of a year now. What is it?

    Looks like it has some alata in it. Got a pic of the leaves?

    Is it just me or do I see truncata in it?

    Leaf tips don't look truncated. Perhaps it's a complex hybrid?

    Agreed. The pitcher peristome and shape look a bit like truncata though. Maybe I'm just seeing things or attributing common traits to truncata.

    Thanks for the input. I agree on maybe some truncata and/or alata. It has pointed me in the right directions. All right I've been doing some research. I think I've found something close. Some of the pitchers on the plant have more of the mottled appearance. I think its close to

    N. 'Rokko' x stenophylla, what you think? or ('Rokko' x (ventrata x stenophylla))? Any other ideas. See below: Thanks. Probably will never be able to put a name on it but I'm looking for opinions. I've got this potted up in a big hanging basket with a N. x leesii and want to put it in the state fair. I might just have to label it N. spp.
    These are 'Rokko' x stenophylla

    That's a tough one. The peristome almost reminds me of wrigleyana or something.
