    thanks everyone. It does look like an upper from where it joins, and the next pitcher is the same. I didnt think a small plant like this could make upper pitchers.

    I am not good enough to say if that is an upper, but a plant that small can make uppers if it's a rooted cutting from the upper part of a vine, correct?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I only really like truncata's leaves. When they get big like the ones at ABG I think they are kind of ugly. Many other Neps are better looking

    Thats not an upper in the picture Joe. N. truncata is pretty neat when you make a cutting of it....if you have a pair of loppers on hand.

Mike Catalani showed me a cutting he did of very upper stem and it was making lowers, however on the new growth, 2 uppers were opened while below them on upper leaves, lowers formed....very interesting that this is the only plant that I've heard that morphs its pitcher type so frequently.
