    The merrillana pitcher is, I think, 2 inches high or a little more. It has most of the bottom under the soil, so I can't really judge it well. But it is definetly the biggest merrilliana pitcher that I have seen, and the mouth is almost an inch wide!!

    I am by no means a Nep identification expert, but I think that your plant is Nepenthes rhombicaulis. I was looking at the pics at Andreas Wistuba's page and this one looks really similar to yours.

    Ok..

    N. sibuyanensis

    It's pretty tough to tell from just the pitcher.. but some characteristics are the two tone coloration. The already fairly broad and flat peristome even on a small pitcher. The lid which doesn't open too much. And the plant which is very unique.. alot like merrilliana but more spoon shaped leaves.
    I don't have any plant pics but here are a couple of my sibuyanensis seedlings.

    Another hint on mine.. The peristome will be black and the plant is covered in fine redish/brown hairs. (answer tomorrow morning)

    As Tony already pointed out N. sibuyanensis has some special features which already can be seen in small plants. The lower half of the pitchers is normally burried in the soil so no colouration of the lower part of the pitcher is necessary. N. sibuyanensis was first described by Nerz and Mann in 1998 so this plant is also quite new to cultivation and isn't as widespread and as well known as many others.

    Identfying Nepenthes is a very tough task because they do vary so much even within the same species they can look totally differnt. And of course even with Tonys hints it is very hard for me to guess his plant. It could be a N. faizaliana or a N. boschiana or even something totally different...

    Tony, I think your plant is N.Clipeata or N.Boschiana by your descriptions.

    Joel, that is a big Merrilliana pitcher BTW! Hope mine makes 3 inchers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Good guesses everyone :>

    Yes it was a very tough one. And being a small seedling makes it even more so.
    It is a N. argentii
    Once you see a nonseedling pitcher you will probably be able to see some similarities.
