    That's a tough one. I'm guessing it has veitchii and northiana somewhere in the mix?
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    I am kind of stupid sometimes with stuff like this. I would say lowland veitchii, but my first thought was truncata.

    cheers,

    The parents look like N. veitchii, N. maxima and N. northiana. Then again it could just be N. x mixta.

    Wow, you guys are on your toes!!

    It's a N. northiana x veitchi.

    The nicer looking pitchers that have more stripes have grown on the back side of the terrarium where I can't easily photograph them.

    WildBill,
    Very nice. There's not too many of these around. We have seedlings of N. (northiana x veitchii) x (northiana x veitchii) made by Steve Stewart a few years ago. Cliff Dodd made the original cross of northiana x veitchii, and then Steve crossed the two siblings from that cross.
    Do you know the origins of your plant?
    What conditions do you find that it prefers? Is yours slow growing?
