    Hmm, I'm not the best Raff expert, but maybe some more familiar people can confirm/deny my assumptions:

    Is that typical pitcher shape for a raff, I always thought they were much more pronounced, even as seedlings.
    The peristome seems pretty ridged, I don't know if that's usual for a raff especially as a seedling.
    I dont know though! I could be wrong onboth counts. Either way, if it is pure species, that could be a cultivar of some sort, I love reddish nepenthes leaves.

    The peristome looks kind of different, or is that how the other seedlings are?

    i have a hard time comparing cause the other seedlings are atleast 50% smaller than this one(hybrid vigor?)..........i forget what all Pyro said could be the pollen donors, just that the male raff was the closest so it was the most likely but there were other males flowering in the same general area.....

    I love reddish nepenthes leaves
    if only it was reddish.....its brownish, i call it bronze cause thats what comes to mind when i look at it

    anyways its an oddball that popped up in 50 some seedlings......

    I love the seedling, if it is a hybrid I will happily take it off your hands! Since it was open pollination it may very well be a chance hybrid, no way anyone is gonna be sure until it puts out a fully mature pitcher.

    I don't think so - mine all look like pure raffs.

    Yours is very large! What's it been, two years?

    In order of proximity the males were:

    raff
    bical
    truncata
    alata

    The "bronze" is not unusual, I have a confirmed raff that has bronze/maroon leaves

    i know raff's can have other than green leaves.....just calling it the oddball cause its the only one that i know of so far thats had other than green leaves in the batch of seeds you sent out.....i find it interesting that its growing a heck of alot faster than any of its siblings that are growing along side it aswell...
