    I think it looks a lot like my N. truncata except for the bulbous pitcher shape. Oh...and the spotting. But the peristome, lid and wings are at least similar.

    But what do I know about neps?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] I only know the ones I have.

    If I had to guess, I would say it was a young N. 'Gentle' ,also called N. 'Cornelius Bak'.

    I am still sticking with a young N. Miranda.. Which would show some tubby shape. N. Gentle I would expect to be even more narrower and cyndrical with more of a purple coloration.

    If anyone would like to see the differences here is Deroose webpage to check outN. Gentle
    N. Miranda

    Edit:
    Fixed the N. Miranda link..



    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I know what this is:
    it's a sibling or similar cultivar to N. Miranda. Several years ago DeRoose had several Miranda-like clones on the market, including this "fat" pitchered clone. I've noticed that it and the other clone have disappeared and only Miranda remains. Someone must have some of the other two in stock. At the time, it was sold as N. maxima, but obviously its a hybrid. The pitchers are very nice, but never achieves the full size of 'Miranda'.

    Well, shoot-a-mile! I did not think it was Miranda, because I thought the pichers looked skinny.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    PS When is your site officially launching, Trent?

    It definitely has a distinctive shape, what I called "fat" I guess could be described a little better. It tends to bulge, or puff out, just below the peristome.. They were also very wavy leaved-more so than N. 'Miranda'. It was never marketed as Miranda, but as maxima. Perhaps a better name would be 'Mirandette', since it's slightly smaller than Miranda [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    The website is real close, Joe. Got a little more red tape to deal with, and it will be up. We're gonna have some informative articles and lotsa pictures of pitchers!
