This seed-grown plant came to me as N. inermis, but it is highly likely that it is actually N. pyriformis, a hybrid with N. talangensis. It has remarkably flat, wedge-shaped pitchers and the peristome color is wonderful:

Thats a nice looking pitcher. How is the inermis x bonsgo coming along?

That plant, unfortunately, has turned out to be a huge disappointment. It grows and grows (four feet of it since April) and hasn't pitchered since last April. I'm ready to do something drastic to see if I can prompt it to pitcher. If that fails, it's out of here!

I'm tempted to ask Cantley if there's a trick to growing this malcontent.

Yes,if you do please let me know.Its a shame the picthers are awesome, very unique.I thought about taking some cuttings from it just to control the vining some.

my inermis x bongso has inflated on every tendril since getting it.... I really hope yours comes around cuz it is a great plant
Your possible N. pyriformis is extraordinary! wow

Perhaps the problem is that BE released this hybrid as TCs of many clones, and maybe there are clones that are especially sulky. This just shouldn't be a difficult plant to,grow, especially given the climate I am providing for it. Well, ya can't win 'em all!
