    This is still an immature plant but I think it is N. vieillardi 'Yellow Pitchers' (not actual cutlivar, just describes plant). It does amazingly well in intermediate conditions. Sorry for the poor quality it's the best I could get.


    You can also see some neps in the background. This was pre Nep bog outside.

    Not sure Tre.

    Just for comparison, here is my supposed version of N. vieillardii. Smaller plant, but very different leaf shape to yours. It also looks as though yours is not hairy? You can clearly see how hairy my one is in the macro shot.



    Its been a slow but steady grower in my intermediate conditions.

    I should note that the ID on mine is not 100% either and I'd love clarification is anyone else has a better idea. The supplier is known to mix plants up at ID stage and to miss-ID others all together, so.....who knows? (i.e. that striped pitcher at the back was sold as N. khasiana. Its actually N. xAllardii)

    Aaron, given the leaf shape, I think it is likely your plant is vieillardii. Tre, I think the leaves on your plant are too narrow to be that species. It looks more like a sanguinea or the like.

    Hi all:

    I agree that the leaf shape belongs to viellardii, but how about the hairy edges typical of viellardii. it does not seem to be so hairy?

    Must agree with Hamish. All the viellardii I've seen (and these were young plants from tc-maybe two or three clones) all looked like Aeron's plant: hirsute round leaves. Some of them were also very reddish in color, both the leaves and the pitchers. I know there are several color forms of this species.

    Hi,

    according to Jebb and Cheek in Science in New Guinea, Vol. 17, No 1 from March 1991 the leaf blade of N. vieillardii is lanceolate; apex acute; base decurrent to 2 cm down the stem. Leaf size is 7 x 2 cm to 20 x 4 cm.

    So Aaron's plant might be something different.
