    Dustin, it looked like lowland form.The wings are apparent in the green and red lowland form but not the highland. H/L form are 3-4 times longer and had tubby pitcher on lower section. If anyone was interested i will upload some pics for comparison.

    L/L reinwardtiana were found to thrive up to 1000 meter with night temp 18ēC, night humidity
    90% . Day temp 27ēC and humidity around 60%. Thus they love the summer weather grown in the open.

    Id be interested in a pic for comparison, my plant isn't that big yet, i can post a pic of the whole plant if needed. thats interesting to hear as it was sold to me as a highlander from a trusted nursery, and right now it grows as a highlander. and we are having a really cool summer here in NY, or where im at, we finally hit 90F for the first time this year since last september i believe is what they said. otherwise temps this year have been high 70s, low to mid 60, though this week is a hot time, we hit that 90 monday, and were are in low to mid 80s till the weekend. Humidity is really never high, we've had lots of rain, so maybe it has been 50% i havnt check how humid it is so maybe ill try to get something.

    Humidity is currently at 83% on a news weather page, though again this is the hottest week we've had all summer, plus the added rain, were supposed to hit mid 70s, and as low as 55 this weekend, which my highlanders love

    Actually the wings could just be that it is a young plant. I do believe the highland form has wings on immature pitchers. However, I could be wrong. Feel free to correct me.

    Im glad i posted this , if i didnt i would have never found this out, thank you very much, i will contact the person i bought them from to let them know, **but first is that trait found throughout all forms of the pitchers? i think mine are intermediate, not uppers yet**

    I have 2 "green" reinwardtianas of apparently different clones. Both have prominent wings. One is pure green, very similar to yours, the other is speckled orange inside the pitcher. The nursery I got these from labelled them as intermediates.

    I also have the red form which has very little as far as wings go.

    A friend who read the forum, call me "the wings are not a good pointer to separate lowland and highland, neither the 2 spots". OK, only mature pitcher will determine either L/L or H/L.
