    I don't think this is N.tobaica. This plant looks like N.kampotiana or N.smilesii.

    After ripping out several long-gone fusca pitchers - I can see my target ok by can't really make out the bat wings


    I tried all kinds of stuff to get the camera in amongst the vines to try & get a clear view of the bat wings. The light was part of the issue but it turns out they were completely covered in nectar - what's up with that?

    It really is amazing how small they are ... N. argentii
    Great job Ron !

    I think you might be on to something, but I believe that it is still too young to be given a 100% positive id via pitchers. The pitchers may be inconclusive, but the leaves are nearly indistinguishable from those of my smaller N. sanguinea. It is only around a year and a half old, so it probably still needs to mature a bit more before pitchers representative of the mature plant will be produced.

    Where did you get it from? I've grown a lot of these and the pitcher morphology doesn't really change, ie they look mature at a very small size.

    If you do not mind, I would prefer to move this discussion into my photo thread, to let this thread serve its original purpose.
