    Several months ago I recieved a small N. rafflesiana from PFT. Now the leaves are at least 6 inches long and the pitchers are about 1 inch and a half long. It appears that the plant is already starting to vine.
    The problem is that it doesn't look like any N. rafflesiana I have ever seen. The pitchers look more like N. ventrata or something similar, no wings and it has the slender look like N. ventrata.
    Do young N. rafflesiana plants look like this? Does anyone have pics of young N. rafflesiana pitchers? I will try to get pics posted soon.

    If I recall correctly on mine, when young it had wings.

    I think I'll order a raff from Tony Parobek's site. At least I know I'll get what I ordered.

    Did that really look like a rafflesiana to you? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] ...

    I'd call up **********, and ask for a free rafflesiana since they gave you the wrong plant.
