    About how big do the pitchers on N. tobaica get? Is there a green pitchered varient?
    I'm asking because I bought one about 5 months ago (I think it may have been off ebay but I am not sure). It is obviously not ventricosa or alata or any other common knockoff. It is starting to get mature lower pitchers I beleve (assuming the pitchers are small like gracilis, which I thought they were). The ala (wings) are not really present near the base of the pitcher but are near the top. The pitchers are about 5 cm long now. Actually if some one could post a picture of theirs that would be great

    I believe the N. tobaica that is currently being circulated is from DeRoos nursery. Its appears green until it larger when its speckled with orange-brown and sometimes with a orangish-red peristome. The largest I have on mine is about four inches currently. Its does grow fast and clumps with age.

    N. tobaica looks very similar to N. gracilis and also gets to a similar size. Lower pitchers are up to 10 cm in size. Colour of the pitchers vary from green through pink to deep red.

    Hi Glen
    Her is a lower and upper on my Khasiana x Ventricosa what do you reckon?

    The lower is a pitcher that a basal shoot off the mother plant and the upper is off the mother plant ,or should i say father plant as its a male.
