    I need to confirm if this is N. mirabilis as I have done a hybrid of it. The pitchers have really convinced me but hte texture of the leaves contradicts the 'papery thin' described of most Mirabilis...mine are waxy and leathery like all other neps, but how can one not be convinced by the pitchers?

    If it is mirabilis...well, its a nat. hybrid (xneglecta) , if not, who knows!

    (Is there a possibility this is thorelli?)
    Thanks

    It certainly does loook a lot like mirabilis, particularly the pitchers. Does it have fimbriate leaf margins? I has a look of one of those Thai species that has a bit of something else in it.

    sorry, what are frimbriate leaf margins? Do you mean " a little frilled" ? Well, not really, or no. As you can see from 1st pic of basal pitchers, leaves look nothing special... And not all of them are that red in colour!
    Thanks
