    N.spectabilis......or not?

    I recently got this plant and was told it was N.spectabilis.....but I'm not so sure.

    Is it a spectabilis, a hybrid, or something entirely different?

    Thanks.

    That looks sanguinea-colored, but I'm not sure about that heart-shaped opening. Spectabilis tendrils aren't attached to their leaves that way either.

    definitely not a straight spectabilis.. Thez is right about the heart shaped opening, specs don't have that. I'm not good enough to tell you what it is, but at least I can tell you what it's not.

    definitely not a straight spectabilis and definitely not a straight sanguinea, the leaftips follow along the tendril on that plant and sanguinea has a peltate leaf tip.

    One of the older dead pitcher resembles N.alata and the other looks like this one but without the "point" on the peristome and with much more red color. The plant itself also reminds me of alata.....My best guess is maybe alata x Maxima, maybe someone's homegrown attempt at hybridizing.

    I'll never figure this one out....
