    It reminds me of a N. Diatas, but that's probably definitely wrong

    N. diatas looks fairly different from this even from a young age (large teeth are one of those differing traits). And as noted earlier the pitchers are not like fusca (or as some people say the various taxa now called fusca), nor do the leaves. I think at this point the necessity is in getting it to produce some more mature pitchers (including eventually uppers) to see what all it will display. It without a doubt involves the inermis complex and quite well could be pyriformis but I would think that would also cause wider lower pitchers (knowing what talangensis does to its hybrids), or it could still be too young to see that effect. There are other species that inermis and dubia can hybridize in the wild with though.
    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.

    I guess I should clear things up. My suspicion was that it had ventrata or ventricosa genes, but upon closer inspection it probably doesn't have that either.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Could definitely be a hybrid. I suspect it's a pure dubia though

    I think you're right on the money hcarlton. From what pictures I've been able to find, the pitchers very closely resemble juvenile pitchers of N. inermis, right down to the partial wings. One example I found:



    Of course N. dubia is so similar I'm not really sure how to tell them apart without upper pitchers. I don't have any experience with these species though.

    Well I have been informed that this plant is N. "Triffid" ("Splendid Diana" x dubia = (kampotiana x maxima) x dubia) so it seems I was wrong about it being a pure species or natural hybrid. You guys were right on the money with N. inermis and N. dubia.
