    Hi,

    Can anyone guess what this is:



    In case you can't tell from the photo, the pitcher is 9" (21cm) tall. Guesses anyone?

    I'm afraid a correct guess doesn't win you the plant

    N. densiflora? Quite a waist on the pitcher though, and not much teeth on the peristome. It's a beauty none the less.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Good try Christer, but the plant isn't from Sumatra and furthermore the stems are hairy. Try again!

    Oh, yes and it's highland Dustin...

    Petiolata? (based on memory of a drawing from Danser's Monograph)

    It's not some strange hybrid like highland truncata x alata 'a red form', is it, lol?
    I was thinking petiolata also for a sec, but it does not look anything like the pic from the 1996 CPN.
    Those little spurs on the bottom of the peristome(sorry if I don't know the term) remind me of N. singalana, but I have never seen one so big.

    Regards,

    Joe
