    Definitely lighter in color than the Madja-As plants, pretty much the same pitcher morphology though. Don't think I've seen this locale in cultivation yet.

    Just from a geographical standpoint, here's a map of the Philippines with Mt. Mayon (Tagalog: Bulkang Mayon) and Mt. Madja-as. The locales are not particularly close together.

    In the mountains to the north of Manila are the Porcelain-type N. ventricosa. N. burkei is found on Mindoro, so the Madja-as plants are almost equidistant from Mayon N. ventricosa and Mindoro N. burkei.

    What do you mean by "standard"? I was under the impression that there is a ton of different variants but no original/standard ventricosa.

    By "standard" I'm sure he's referring to the common garden-center variety ventricosa, the closely related forms everyone manages to have.
    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.
