    I will go out on a limb and say it looks alot like N. sibuyanensis x talangensis

    but don't hold me to it and by all means don't label it that other than maybe with alot of ?? after it. Odds are you may never know for certain and even if you could narrow it down considerably it's difficult in many of these cases to be sure enough to actually relabel a plant.

    Edit:
    When it gets larger, your best course of action would be to send the nursery a photo and tell them when and where you picked it up and if they might be able to help ID it. They might be able to look in their records of plants they were selling during that time frame.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Looks like my sang.. the peristome is a bit bumpier, but that sometimes happens. Just my $.02 (which is like your fifty bucks!)

    Edit: nah, nevermind, it really doesn't, if you look at the first pic.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I think I'll give this little guy another year or so before I question the nursery about it.

    So I ended up lopping off the main growth point to make way for the two basals overtaking it, and this pitcher just formed from one of them.






    Looks different than the last one I posted a few months ago, as I'm seeing more talangensis than I did before. Any clue, guys?

    Judging by the leaves, the peristome, shape of pitcher and the molting, I cast my vote for N. sibuyanensis x talangensis. (I thought this before I saw tony's post).

    I'm thinking the same thing, Carn, but I guess I'll have to wait until I get the characteristic toothy rise near the lid to be sure (well, more so, anyway).

    oook, well, I just received a response from Jacob Farin, who said they have never stocked N. sibuyanensis x talangensis (at least not knowingly), and the first plant that came to mind when he saw it was ventricosa x talangensis. Considering the lack of raised teeth towards the lid, this makes sense.
