Here are a few pics of an unknow nep I have. I have had it for a long time and I lost the tag and forgot the name. I am geussing that it is a Maxima judging by the upper pitchers but the very few small lowers contradict that theory. They are all from the same plant but different cuttings. To make it even more complicated it is just as likely that it might be a hybrid as it is a species. thanks!

Where did it come from? If it originally came from Sulawesi, it's just another form of N. maxima; if it came from someone's collection, it could be almost anything involving the N. maxima/fusca group, but with those lid appendages, I'm inclined to lean towards the former. - Rich
I'm not suffering from insanity! I'm rather enjoying it, actually!

Basing the identification of a plant on only the pitchers is problematic. However, there is nothing about the pitchers which indicates the inclusion of N. fusca. They are a perfect match for N. maxima.
Any photos of the stems and leaves? Maybe the whole plant?
I have to say, this plant sure looks very happy with it's conditions
They got control of the heart of a nation Their social bribes seem so graciously As time goes by 'Cause time as you can see will slowly die for you and me
Look at the lost souls they seem so black Look at the lost souls Souls of Black
