    If it is a hybrid and the parent is Veitchii it will be a climber! But it will take quite a while to climb yet. My Veitchii x Truncata is still a bulky plant but is not climbing yet, I have had it for about 2 years now. But just wait and eventually you will see some climbing signs in the future of this plant.

    well, I hate to say it, but it looks some what like a ventricosa to me...

    do you have a nursery label any where? do you know who produced it? Gublers?

    I think it is fun to try and identify mystery plants, but we all need to remember, it will always be a mystery, we can not for certain determine this plants heredity, and as such, it should only be traded as an 'unknown'. if it is, say, sanguinea, or a hybrid of thorelli, and you trade it to someone who is looking for ventricosa, to cross later and create a new complex hybrid, then you have pretty much given that person a costly detour..

    Just my 2 cents of caution! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] but I do think ventricosa or ventrata!

    P.S.I'm sure it's not ventrincosa cause it has a wing ventrincosas don't have wings

    I don't think it's a ventricosa either, because of the wings mainly. It looks vaguely similar to the spathulata x veitchii that I grow, but it's a different hybrid, especially if it has a red lid. It may be a veitchii hybrid of some sort, as Nep G suggested. Sanguinia do have a very similar coloration on the pitcher, but the opening is larger on sanguinia.
