I think it might be a highland hybrid because of the little sign stuck in it when he bought it saying "tropical pitcher plant- highland hybrid" that had color photos of what the mature pitchers looked like. Wish I had saved it, but I didn't.
Looks like N. miranda to me too. Nice plant, I remember back when mine finally started pitchering (took like 8 months after I had it shipped to me) but now, no matter what I do or where I move it, it just keeps going. Here it is just before I chopped it all up to make more, and threw it up in the rafters of the greenhouse where it still sits. The gap between the bars was about 12 or 13" so guess how big that pitcher was in the lower left hand corner The uppers were a pretty good size too, see the one just above the huge lower.

I think you guys might have something here. I actually had the same thought when I first saw the size of the plant and it hadn't even started to vine out yet. Makes sense that it would concentrate on expanding it's foliage in such a nutrient rich environment rather than on producing pitchers for extra nutrients.
It's a really good point. I thought about that, but didn't think I was savvy enough with the subject to make the comment.
I've always had all different kinds of friends. I wander freely amongst the tribes. The only criteria is they have to make me laugh, and you and I both have the same DRY sick sense of humor.
It doesn't even bother me that you look 'tarded. Lots of 'tards are doing really great things with their lives nowadays. My first GF was 'tarded. She's an AIRLINE PILOT now.
