    Looking at the lid alone it definitely looks like a khasiana. You've got some nice colors on those pitchers! How old is this one?

    cant base a species or hybrid off of pitcher shape....
    Its more than likely a khasiana, just give it some more time to grow out a bit

    That's why I said looking at the lid alone. There's too many factors up in the air until the plant gets older. An educated guess though? N. khasiana

    Kris is right about giving it time, but I'll shoot the breeze and say it's ventricosa or khasiana x ventricosa. Mostly because none of the pitchers seem to have that characteristic facing inward trend like young khasianas normally do.

    Ah what a great thread! I love N. khasiana. I'll put new pics up of mine in the week.

    French, khasiana LOVES light in my experience and will grow really fast even in pretty poor conditions. Mine had four basals when still quite small, but I foolishly tried separating them when they were still only about an inch or two and they all died. I'd recommend waiting till they were about 6" I suppose, though maybe someone else has experience successfully separating them smaller?

    Your plant looks happy, well done!

    Thanks for the kind words gnome,

    I have to agree with you when you say it loves light. Under the same condition the paper thin leaves stay green while my other Neps will get a red tint on the leaves when put at the same distance, a clear indication of too much light.
    Thank you for your advise on the basals as this my first basal...ever.
    I will play the waiting game and hope that when the time comes I can separate without problems.

    Looking forward to your pictures! Seems there's really not that many around for some reason : /

    Update: last couple leaves have been larger with this last one being massive in comparison to the plant itself. Looks like a repotting may be in order in the next few months.
