I bought this Nep about two months ago from Cook's as a cutting. But apparently there was some mix up and I didn't get an N. X 'Effulgent Koto'. So I would like to know what it is.

I am currently growing it under lowland conditions with lots of light. This pitcher is four inches tall.

I just spent most of the day out at Dean's place hanging out and talking plants. You should just drop him a email with a picture and ask him what he thinks, he is pretty amazing when it comes to identifing hybrids and what not. Then you should tell us what he thought.
Here's his email: cooks@flytraps.com

N. Glabrata has thin leaves with tiny thumb size pitchers. N. x Coccinea has different pitchers, too. I think it may be a hybrid involving N. Rafflesiana.

Well, seeing how N. x coccinea has rafflesiana in it[I believe it's (N. rafflesisana x N. ampullaria) x N. mirabilis], one of Matti's choices may not be out of the question. It's possible it's a hybrid involving N. x coccinea. I think Dean would be the best choice. I know Extotica sell's a lot of hybrids involving N. x rokko, so who knows?

Nepenthes look different under different growing conditions, west coast plants often look different than east coast plants, it's either a x wrigleyiana or a x dormanniana, but I'd have to see the foliage as well as a pitcher in hand to make a possitive ID. I go help from Bruce Lee in Florida.

Are you kidding me, it has nothing of amp in it. The leafs are different ok meybe the wings but Raff have bigger wings then amps. I don't thank there is any mirables in it either.

I agree With Dustin it's not a N. glabrata because the wings are smaller on a Glabrata and the lid the slippery glands look different on both of the plants. Th leafs on both plants look different as well. What ever you have there don't trade it, find out what you have first, becaue what ever you have can be a rare speciment.
