    No, I don't think so. I believe that there is quite a lot of variation in pitcher markings/colouration in this species though.

    I am expecting a Nepenthes glabrata soon.. I was wondering what your growing conditions were so I can get ideas on setting up it's new home?

    I initially tried it on my growshelf in its as-delivered growing medium of fibrous peat, under daylight and cool white fluorescents, but the pitchers shrivelled and died. I then transferred it to my small terrarium, where it initailly did well and even produced some basals, but then just stopped pitchering and didn't look too healthy. My terrarium has a growing mix of perlite and live Sphagnum moss. I removed the largest basal from the terrarium, repotted it in a mix of cypress mulch, NZ dried Sphagnum moss and large chunks of burning peat and put it back on my growshelf in an open vase, where it has now started to pitcher again as you see in the picture. I give it a heavy misting, enough to wet the soil, most days.
