    Thanks for all the input!

    Here's another pic as a side view:


    It grows in lowland conditions but pretty slowly (I haven't tried intermediate yet). For almost a year I had it in highland conditions (due to it supposedly being a "bongso hybrid") but it does almost nothing in highland conditions. The leaves are sturdy and pitchers last a very long time.

    Hey Steve, that was my initial thought, too, but I have x 'Wrigleyana', and the pitcher Swords has is much more elongated that the ones my Wrigly produces. Also, it has a more pronounced petrisome.
