    Dionae - i can almost guarantee that nep is a mirabilis variant.... the fimbriated leaves (the little spines if you will, along the leaves) the shape of its leaves, the attachments, down to its growth habit... I almost leaned in the direction of an amp/mirabilis hybrid because in the first photo it appeared that the leaves were covered in the odd dust/fluff that ampullaria tends to get on its leaves... Give it some time to grow, but im fairly certain what you have is indeed a mirabilis.

    Thanks SK. My first guess was globosa but the pitchers looked too elongated. Looks like i'll have to wait and see. Thanks again!

    Dionae- N. globosa is a variety of mirabilis, literally N. mirabilis var. globosa
    Every part of var. globosa is identical to your standard mirabilis outside of the obvious pitcher morphology, and some var. globosa have a tuberous root stock, which is more of a locale thing...
