    "Think" is a good way to put it. Two choices, either N. alata or Nepenthes mindanaoensis . The last photo has speckling that many photos of mindanaoensis has. I know there are many speckled alata forms, but most I have seen are more reddish. I would have thought the first one was alata also, but to be honest, I am really unsure.
    Were all three relatively close by, or from different locales?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    yes they are all in the same locale or area. the first was said to be mindanaoensis, the second and third was thought as petiolata.

    nepenthes in nature have a lot more to deal with than those in cultivation! just because the pitcers look crappy doesnt mean they arent happy plants.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    I would agree on the mindanaoensis and alata, but not petiolata.
