    There really is no way to tell young Nepenthes plants apart, especially when they are the same species with two different climate types. But for starters, N. truncata highland will be distinguished by more hirsute leaves, like with a red fuzz for hair, darker peristome coloration and shape, slower growing habit and a larger size when mature. Lowland N. truncata, if it is indeed that plant, should excel in your conditions.

    Well... My plant has a red fuzz on the new leaf and the new pitcher is covered by these same velvety red hairs.

    But as the plants is too small and so slow grower, maybe i will need to wait more time, right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I wish i had a better camera to take more detailed pics... Well.. i'll see waht i can do [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, that is called the pitcher spur, located just above the peristome neck and on the operculum. That looks fairly typical, I'd like to see a pitcher once it opens and colors up fully in addition to the physical appearance of the plant you've provided.
