    How can you tell the difference at this size? Leaf shape/pitcher?

    Here are a few up close shots. Can you point out the features that leed you believe N. Dubia?

    N. dubia and inermis both possess red stems and a compact, erect growth form that jamban doesn't have, as well as young pitchers with a broadly infundibular lower half and more constricted, sometimes semi-flattened but often cylindrical upper half as well as a heavily slanted pitcher mouth, and they're produced on rather short tendrils so the pitchers "float" just off the leaf tip. N. jamban, even from a young age, has more slender leaves, no red stem, and pitchers from very early on are narrow in the base and broad above with a wide mouth that stays more horizontal.
    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.

    Thank you for the reply. Always Interested in learning something new.

    Jamban leaf shape (even at that size) has a bit more tear shape to it and the tendrils are much longer. Also the pitchers exhibit the "toilet" shape pretty early on, and the peristomes are a bit wider/exposed. Dubia, in contrast, exhibits a smaller peristome to pitcher body ratio.

    Below is a picture with my Jamban at a similar small size. Note the leaf shape and pitcher morphology. This plant may be a little older than yours, but it is still very different.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Thank you. It's a shame as I wanted a Jamban really bad.
