    I found this nep in a nursery in Kaohsiung, Southern Taiwan.

    Unfortunately, even the NurseryMeister himself couldn't give me any specifics about its ID, only that:

    1. it's a wild hybrid from Thailand

    2. even his Thai supplier is still tearing his hair out about the exact parentage, and

    3. it most probably has some thorellii in it.

    Experts to the front! What might it be?

    Have fun

    I would guess that it has N. rafflesiana in it.

    Hi Hans,
    Nobody knows exactly what it is, but it grows on islands and in some coastal areas along the southwestern coast of Thailand. There is some debate as to whether it is a natural hybrid, a new species, or a subspecies of mirabilis or anamensis-smilesii-thorelii group. The most popular theory is a natural hybrid between mirabilis and rafflesiana, even though raff does not grow in the same habitats.
    Right now, Nepenthes collectors are calling it Nepenthes Viking, because the neck-body join resembles the bow of a viking (Norse) ship.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Thanks a million, everyone, (especially Trent!), for the info! I've forwarded your suggestions to Mr. Lin, the NurseryMeister, and he was so happy about solving the riddle that he promised me the first cutting, come next spring
