    It looks like it may be N. x 'Emmarene'. Have fun growing it!

    I would think its the hybrid N. x 'Emmarene', too. Plants from dutch tc nurseries with N. tobaica labels are always this plant and yours look like that exactly.

    The alata label was from a N. x ventrata, they are all mislabeled,too. The nurseries just do not care, most buyers are total beginners and don't recognize it too.

    The problem with this plant that is labled N. toabaica, is that you would think the seed had to come from a N. tobaica for this problem to have occured. Some of us speculate it is possibly tobaica x ventricosa, as a result. Otherwise it does look like a Emmarene, doesn't it?

    I would not call it N. Emmarene..

    It looks like the Deroosa plant and their tradition is to use the female parent name on the label. I am guessing it is something like N. tobaica x (Emmarene)

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

    You will get no response, maybe a polite, "sorry, but the origins of our selected plants is proprietary information."
    I have an "inside source" in the tissue culturing business who informed me some time ago that the company names the plant after the seed bearer.
