    The so-called N. "alata" a lot of people grow is graciliflora. I would also bet money the common clone of "x ventrata" is actually a hybrid with graciliflora instead of alata. Some major characters that distinguish the two are: graciliflora lacks a noticeable indumentum on the pitchers and/or leaves, has a more bulbous pitcher bottom and thin neck, also tends to lose the wings while alata will sometimes keep them (if I remember this correctly, I may have that backwards), graciliflora also rarely has much patterning, and it is found on most of the islands in the Philippines while the true alata is currently confined to Luzon and small islands nearby, if that.
    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.

    Huh, I read the 2013 paper about it by Creek and Jebb, and you're absolutely right. Funny how that works out. Cool stuff!!

    got some more pics to put up:
    N. 'Miranda' lower hiding behind the light cord: this one is pushing 7 1/2", and isn't fully expanded yet, so it may count as my largest pitcher ever!

    And an upper framed in the window

    One of the better pitchers on my N. ventricosa "red"

    A pair of ventricosa x gymnamphora

    Lower on N. 'Rokko' Exotica

    Most recent pitcher on N. truncata Lowland SG

    N. Viking #19 x (maxima x trusmadiensis)

    N. talangensis actually seems to be an easy grower, though that happy moss may have something to do with that....

    N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)

    N. eustachya "red" Bukit Barisan seedlings

    'Rebecca Soper' lower

    and the oddly colored uppers: I like how they get random dark patches and speckling

    Glamour shots of N. graciliflora "Pink," my most elegant pitcher



    N. 'Gentle' promises much at maturity

    N. copelandii pitchers from 2 separate growth points

    Yes, a whole lot of seedlings (most pictured are the eustachya bunch). So far, though, I'm only really having luck with my lowlanders and N. jamban. Down to 3 lingulata (from 54), 3 gymnamphora which will probably die (from 23), 4 N. bongso from like 48, and struggling with singalanas. So disappointing.....
