    Hi,
    Looks like a N. merrilliana cross with belli. Merrilliana has definite sessil leaf joints and belli has the longer tendrils.
    Nice plant.
    Truly,
    Tom

    Hi Hans,
    Gotta go with the merrilliana hybrid possibility. It's really nice and once it gets some size and gets established, it'll be a beauty.
    The long red tendrils make me think thorelii, but bellii has long tendrils too! The peristome shape makes me lean more towards (thorelii x merrilliana). I believe this hybrid was made years ago in Japan.
    It's not pure merrilliana. tendrils aren't right.

    Deffinately not pure N. merrilliana. I would lean with Trent towards N. thorelii x merrilliana.

    I take back what I said about a possible N. sibuyanensis hybrid. Age of the plant, angle of the pitcher opening are not right for it to be something with N. sibuyanensis. IMO of course!

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
