    Hey, thanks for providing the picture I couldn't! Same plant and I had to give a written description. The answer came back as ventrata. This should be interesting, now, since there is an actual picture! Dude, you've been most helpful in putting a pic to a written description!

    Looks like it will turn out N. Ventrata. It is not pure N. alata

    I have N ventrata,and one just like that from Lowes, and it looks nothing like my ventrata. I think it might be ventricosa.

    Will be able to tell more when it grows bigger and more mature. However, N. ventricosa loses its fringed wings at a young age. This looks like a fairly good sized seedling. Much larger than I would expect for a N. ventricosa to continue exhibiting the fringed wings. The newer leaves also appear to be getting wider. N. ventricosa has narrow straight leaves. N. Ventrata is also MUCH more common.

    Time will tell!

    I can add that the plants that have been supplied have been between 2.5" & 6" in diameter. I would say that the plant pictured is closer to the 6" size. The pitchers themesleves are ~1.5 - 2". I'm guessing at Zac's specimen, but mine are those dimensions. Does that help?
