    This is the same plant you have. I also bought it as Nepenthes alata from a nursery.

    Yeah, and the smaller pitchers are identical to yours.

    Several already beat me to it, but your pitchers look almost exactly like a ventrata I used to have. It sure was a viner after it got going! Very easy to care for and not picky at all about temp and humidity. Very good at pitchering too.

    I have a new cross of N. Ventrata made by EP using their N. ventricosa 'k' x N. alata 'red' or 't' (I forget which alata)
    so far makes pitchers like this:

    (link is to a shot of one of my seed grown EP ventrata plants)

    Though sometimes the pitchers are far squatter and look like a soda can / pitcher. Leaves and overall plant size take after ventricosa and stay compact despite putting out larger and larger pitchers.

    Wow, that one just looks like a ventricosa 'Red' to me. Nice plant.

    There are a few different pitcher shapes that pop out of this one, the ones that are fat and squat like a soda can look almost like ventricosa x sibuyanensis pitchers then they move towards these taller more waisted ones.
