yes i thought it was burb x ed when i got mine. this seems like that one auction that was on ebay early this year. i ask the grower if it was esactly burb x ed. he insisted it was. now looking at mine in comparison to other burb x ed photos i dont think its it. i did buy two other plants from the auction this gent was selling it came with n. rebecca sopers and a n. alata (lantern). now these plants were TCd so anything is possible. regardless its a wonderful plant that is hard to come by. enjoy it. this ones a very and i mean very fast grower. oh forgot this TC batch was from australia.

raff x ed? Really....? How would that cross ever happen? It would never happen in the wild (Ed's up in the alpine forests, and the raffs are down in the peat swamps some 1500m down), and I could probably count the number of people in the world with flowering size edwardsianas on one hand. besides that it doesn't really look like it... looks a lot more like a dyeriana if you ask me. It's a nice plant, in any case!
Hi nepenthesfreak I never clamed that this was a natural hybrid. You do know that the majority of nepenthes hybrids that are sold are not natural hybrids.
To everyone else thanks with the help on this plant as most of you have mentioned this plant looks a lot like N. Dyeriana. As the plant has started to grow it looks more like Dyeriana so I have labeled it as such Once again thank you
Robert - Please don't, to label it as N. Dyeriana, would be wrong. Just because it may look like something doesn't matter. Unless you can be absolutely certain of a plants identity, then leave it as an unknown hybrid. Especially as yours is still so young, not even showing all it's qualities yet.
There are more than enough wrongly labled plants in circulation already without more being added. At some point your plant or cuttings may get passed around and if that ID is wrong, then someone is going to be dissapointed (or even angry). You bought it as an eddy hybrid - probably because at some time, somebody thought it looked like it 'might' have eddy in it !!
