Everything looks great Keith, especially the rafflesianas and ampullarias ! Your photo of "reinwardtiana" is actually Nepenthes maxima though.

There was a batch of "reinwardtiana" seed that went around few years ago that all turned out to be Nepenthes maxima. This is very likely one of those plants. Having said that though, those seeds produced some of the nicest maximas I've seen. Paul B. has a few exceptionally nice ones from this mislabeled seed.

Agreed - the "reinwardtiana" is undoubtedly from seed that was distributed to several growers and all of those turned out to be N. maxima variants. Some are better than others - some are downright spectacular - and most, if not all, are well worth keeping. Some, based on what I'm seeing, are actually a kind of dwarf variation!

Paul, thanks for the feedback and background. This may well be on of the dwarf variations, it has remained very compact.... I will be sure to correct the label on this plant.

Keith,
I did wonder if that might be one of the "dwarf" variants. ;-) I have a couple seed grown plants from that lot that have transitioned into the vining stage already, and yet the pitchers remain quite small; under 4" tall. My smallest plants look VERY similar to the one in the above photo.
