    N. 'Gentle' has a wavy edged leaf and more of a bronze brownish peristome.
    Considering Lowe's and Home Despot order plants from the wholesalers by the thousands, I'm gonna say N. 'Miranda'. Also, the pitcher coloration and leaf-growth habit are pure N. 'Miranda'.

    Looks like a young N. miranda to me, probably an established basal shoot, Mine has just made a basal shoot and the second basal pitcher is over 8" tall! The pitchers are somewhat long and thin in it's younger stages Also the Gentle has more of a N. fusca (sabah form) look with as someone said, wavy leaves and a furry coating on the plant. Miranda is not furry at all.
    Of the two, Miranda's my favorite, fast growing and ENORMOUS!

    definitely not a 'gentle', but the small upper pitchers are terribly similar but hmm, i really don't think there is any way it could be a 'gentle'.

    miranda sounds like a good bet.

    i am a live nursery specialist at lowe's, we do not order by the thousands even though, i know, you were exaggerating on purpose. we get maybe twenty in. also, the vendor's at gubler's don't know poop. met them. they're pests.

    But I was only slightly exaggerating

    Imagine 20 N. 'Miranda' plants being shipped to fifty different Lowe's locations. (how many Lowe's are there? We must have 20 of them in the southeast Florida tri-county area alone). Do the math....
