    According to the descriptions in Jebb and Cheek, N. ventricosa, N. bellii and N. sibuyanensis are 1 flowered. The other Philippine species I could find were 2 flowered or the information wasn't in the description.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Sorry, can someone please explain what is meant by 1 or 2 flowered?

    Thanks,

    Aaron.

    A single flower on one stalk or 2 joined together I believe.

    The male inflorescence is used as one of the criteria to determine species rank etc.
    The partial peduncles may or may not split and hold either 1 or more flowers.

    Here is N. tobaica. You can see each partial peduncle splits and holds 2 flowers each. (this is female so may not be 100% accurate but it's still close)

    Thanks Noah/Tony.

    I thought that is what it meant but Google was not forthcoming with helpful info!

    Side-note: With Spring weather well and truly hitting us this week my fingers are crossed that I get some flowers through the warmer months.

    Aaron.

    Thanks Tony for looking it up, I guess it's time that I get my hands on a Jebb and Cheek...
