    - but if you look at the #1 and #2 pics. you can see that they are not raised ribs, but wings. - ribs are like spikes, aren't they? - but if you look extra closely you can clearly (ok, not clearly ) see that it looks like a solid wall, not spikes











    - Man, I don't think I'll win this. -

    ok, ok everyone. The leaves do look like ventrincosa leaves, and the pitchers look like ventrincosa pitchers. But I think we should wait to see other peoples opinions. could the flowers tell?

    It's a ventricosa. Spectabilis - small wings like that are produced by young ventricosa, but go away as it gets larger.

    Ventricosa has wings when it's young, as it ages the wings get shortwer and shorter until then go away. So yeah spect, your right no win on this disscusion.

    I have that same plant (we bought it at the same store)... Its ventricosa... I'm quite positive. The newest pitcher that opened (it was pretty much ready to open when i bought it), and it looks even more ventricosa... It only lacks the fluted peristome...
