    It looks to me like an N. khasiana , very easy plant to grow .

    If it is N. khasiana, it is a neat variety. N. khasiana generally (IMHO) are noticiably hirsute and have quite short tendrils except on upper pitchers. I think it's a hybrid, definetly with N. khasiana. Perhaps these could be possible alternatives:

    khasiana x ventricosa
    khasiana x alata
    maybe even khasiana x X ventrata.

    What was it labeled when you purchased it? (Where did you purchase it?) PM me if you wish.

    I bought it from a guy in Quebec a place called tropical jungle. When I spoke to him on the phone he said the only nep they had for sale was N.Maxima. However my friend bought one two weeks later and he told him they dont have any N.Maxima but they do sell Nepenthes x Coccinea.

    So it might be one of these two.

    Definetly not N. x coccinea or N. maxima.

    My conclusion is the hybrid N. khasiana x N. ventricosa. or N. khasiana x N. alata.

    I think it is n. khasiana x alata , its more common then the other possibilites , if it is then your hybrid is n. x khasiata i think .

    I agree with Goldtrap. N. emmarene has different color and is shaped differently

    This plant comes from the same place as N. Miranda and N. coccinea in Europe. It is labeled N. tobaica, but is actually N. tobaica x N. ventricosa.
    It's an easy grower under intermediate conditions, and stays relatively small. The pitchers look exactly between the two parents. The plant in the pictures is full grown.
    Hope this is helpful.
