    Hey guys,
    I actually think this is emmarene, too. I say this because I have a nep that makes the very same pitchers....here's the catch...Those are the jeuvenile pitchers. As they grow and get larger, the true colors of the emmarene should become apparent. So I guess time will tell..

    Here are some up to date photos of the plant in question. These pitchers are about 3x as large as the ones from the first post.

    That sharp line between the dark and light coloration kinda reminds me of what Ventratas usually have. It's definately not ventrata, but I'd hazard a guess that theres either Ventricosa or Alata in there somewhere, looking at the peristome and 'hip' of it, I'd say ventricosa.

    I stand by what I said way back when. They are sold as N. tobaica, and obviously are not. Typically, the wholesaler names all their plants after the pod bearer, so it is something onto tobaica. Exactly what is proprietary info. Everything is a guess. We all see the influence of ventricosa. Some see khasiana or alata. It may be ventricosa x khasiana onto tobaica. It is not pure ventricosa x khasiana, which is a cross named N. emmarene. It does not look like emmarene....so call it what you will, just don't call it tobaica...because it isn't [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    It looks like a very nice, maybe clone worthy form of N.x emmarene
