    So it looks like the boschiana mimic doesn't have the red spots but has thd red coloring.

    It's pretty funny they'd call a spotless Nepenthes a "boschiana mimic" cos both of my N. boschiana plants have tons of spots on their pitchers...

    It's more the shape of the pitcher than the coloring that gives the form its name.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I know where you got that plant JB. I got some rooted cuttings of the same plant.

    I am pretty sure it is a boschiana mimic.
