    I grew this plant labeled N. 'Efflugent Koto' for years and it looked like yours Mass no matter what kinda light I had it under or how tall I let it get, it was always yellow with a pink blush and pink wings. They never looked like the pics that show the plant with not only a striped peristome but also spotted pitchers. My guess is there are two different hybrids represented between your pic and the one posted by Antechron.

    HAHA!! Just as I suspected.. Here is the first pitcher the smaller plant produced.

    STRIPES! So the other pitchers produced by the larger plant are actually intermediates, rather than uppers?

    Is that a pic of yours (left) and one of Antechron's plants (right) side by side? I don't think they look alike at all since the one on the right is fatter, shorter and has speckles.

    Neither pitcher shown has a rear tendril attachment or curl so I would say both are intermediates.

    These are both mine, and both growing from the same root system!! The one without stripes is from the larger vining growth point, and the stiped one is from it's 1.5 foot tall basal.
    Those pitchers look completely different, so I don't think they are both intermediates.

    Pitchers change as they mature... even within the lower pitcher phase. So I wouldn't be surprised that its just like any other nep as its pitchers get bigger, but in this case the pitchers become less spectacular.

    From the looks of it, it might be in the upper pitcher phase, not all neps will follow the same conventional trends. Looking at the tendril, no loop as formed but it is evident that the tendril tried too... so I say they are more likely intermediates.

    Weird, I never once saw pitchers like those on mine which looked exactly like your first pic.
