Budgies are best
Those are awesome singalana x ventricosa. I like the shapes are kind of like ventricosa. That looks like it could be the example photo for one of the big nurseries.

It's a terrific plant: it's so easy to grow, the pitchers are dark red/purple and really tough, and they last forever, so it makes a huge display that is impossible to miss, even in a crowded GH. If you ever get a chance to buy a plant from this cross, get it! You won't be disappointed, I'm sure.

The first test I did was repeated applications of (urea free) fertilizer at fairly high concentrations, to see if I could determine the point at which things went from optimal to overboard. (never did: I think I was overly cautious in feeding) I suspect many of us have a sacrificial plant designated for this purpose.

Got to love those maxima poi dogs although I think they may be "too" tough of a plant to use as a "test subject" hahaha
