    Yeah this isn't the right thread but to answer your question I don't see anything suggesting it would't be a tiveyi. Tiveyi is a grex so some extremely different looking plants all share the name. Without definitive proof I wouldn't go changing your tags.

    There are way too many hybrids out there that can produce pitchers similar to this to give any specific answers without being able to see diagnostic traits such as leaf shape and attachment to the stem, other pitchers to determine if this is normal appearance or even fully mature appearance, etc and even that might not narrow it down. Anything involving maxima, veitchii, even spathulata and its relatives could be among possibilities for this cross though I would not lean toward tiveyi as just about every plant I have seen of that hybrid has far tubbier pitchers and much less of a pronounced hip (neither parent species shows much of a hip even in young pitchers, and the hybrid should not either). Something with spathulata, even perhaps spathulata x veitchii like the similar N. 'Judith Finn' would be more to my guessing.

    Also, N. x tiveyi is not a grex, but a Latin hybrid name for anything that is maxima x veitchii or the reverse cross (a grex would be a single cross only between two particular clones of these species, unidirectional).
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
