    Probs a ventrata... Mabes seedgrown. My venty baby pitchers look like that but they're a bit more tubby with a plumper bottom. I would say SG ventrata, but not 100% positive.

    Where'd you get it?

    A ventrata pitcher probably would have more wings yes, but ventricosa pitchers seem to be some of the few which never have wings in just about any part of their growth cycle. Something I've noticed about my ventricosas is also the typical color difference shown here between top and bottom portions of the pitchers. I'd say this is pure ventricosa, it just needs another year or so to come into its own.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Huh?

    I have had several ventratas, they have always had winged pitchers. Maybe not big wings, but wings.

    I got ventricosa seed from a reputable Cp nursery (I trust that they are indeed ventricosa), and the seedling pitchers have wings.

    The plant in question by Sundrew is still young but is well beyond the seedling stage, so wouldn't necesarily expect it to be showing wings anymore, though they're still not adult pitchers.

    None that I have seen have wings. There may be some variations that have them, but I don't think it is common because I haven't seen them at my Nep store, on pictures of them online (without searching "ventrata wings") or anywhere else. I have seen them in pictures online of the baby pitchers, but not on lowers or intermediates or uppers.

    I agree there are wings on baby pitchers like that, but not when the plant develops adult lowers, intermediates or uppers.

    Ok, so basically just wait until it gets bigger to find out. Looks like we don't have a deffinative answer. LOL
