    Cool, who knows why its doing that, or maybe the intermediates weren't intermediates to begin with.

    I still don't believe those are intermediates. And just ta let you know, Photobucket provides IMG codes... Put [IMG]-insert URL here-[/IMG] to show the pictures and not links. Edit: the first "intermediate" was probably made because of the change from terrarium to where ever it is now.

    It is still an immature plant so they are not intermediate. If anything they are still working on forming mature lower pitchers.

    I have my doubts it is N. ventricosa as well. The last link showing the leaves indicate to me it is not pure N. ventricosa. The leaves are much wider at the tip than the base. Time will tell...
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony, I was thinking it was a N. ventricosa 'red', the pitchers are exactly the same on mine, and N. ventricosa 'red' is suspected to be a hybrid.

    many of the ventricosa out arent true ventricosa anyway.
    Tony is right it is an immature plant
    those are not intermediate pitchers
    Ventricosa is one of those plants that has the tendril placement all over the place. alot of the times at the rear of the pitcher even for lower pitchers.
    Sanguinea also has weird tendril placement, more at the side of the pitcher which is missleading.
    generally intermediates are produced just as the plant begins to vine and you will see it when the internodes become larger.
