    I'm not an expert either, but I would say it's not N. xVentrata. Pitcher shape and lid are not representative of what I have come to identify with N. xVentrata, among other things. Those were the two main things that popped out at me though.

    I am very poor at identifying nepenthes though so maybe wait until an expert rolls along to offer some advice.

    Which garden centre was it? The ones like B&Q and Homebase tend to have more generic CPs, whereas the independent ones tend to have a wider range, making it harder to work out... Try going on CPUK, they might have a better collective idea about the plants found in the English garden centres. I found a red Nepenthes a while ago from one, and am still none the wiser as to what it is :s

    No I'm not.

    Maybe mirabilis X thorelli? The peristome looks like amp, but the pitcher color/shape is that of thorelli. I'm not very good at this since I just got back from a hiatus

    True N. thorelii probably isn't in cultivation.

    Aware.

    Just thought that since there were many thorelli hybrids that this might be one as well. Don't really have any other idea other than something with mirabilis/thorelli :/
