    Uh the one on the right end with the red peristome
    Background on the plant will help too. Where did you get it. What was it labelled. Do you know the original source etc etc.

    IF I am looking at the right picture I don't think it is even a N. merrilliana hybrid.

    EDIT: OK I have no clue which photo you mean

    EDIT2: OK I found it .. finally. Could be N. merrilliana x alata. Natural hybrid which is not that uncommon
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Well I can tell you that a few of the seed grown N. merrilliana plants from BExotics have turned out to be the hybrid with N. alata. Maybe as it grows larger it will be more apparent. N. merrilliana doesn't get those squat tubby pitchers initially. I would check with the place you got it from and ask if it was a seed grown plant and where they got it from.

    No I am not 100% absolutely certain it is that hybrid so for now I would just make a note on the label it might be the natural hybrid with N. alata.

    That looks like the plant you got from me. I got it from Phill Mann several years ago. At the time he indicated it might be the hybrid with alata. I believe it was TC'ed from wild seed as there were multiple small plants growing on a single root system which happens with TC. It was encoded as 253/98 on his website.
