kev, I have 2 of these unknown hybrids, largest one stands a meter of the ground, and has 20cm pitcher, got this Monday, the one I added for photos comes from same supplier but someone else bought it and had it when I bought my new plants on Monday he said I can take it, because it is taking to much space, I also have a N. veitchii pink, a N. miranda, and 3 other unidentified plants, they are not pitchering yet. But I hope they will soon, the one unidentified is going to flower, add me on facebook if you want to view some of my other plants, have not added those I got monday

It is practically impossible to track the parentage of this plant. When I originally purchased it, the vendor argued with me adamantly that it was a "Special Orchid" called Nepenthusus. It has probably been in SA for ten years or more. What I can tell you, is that this plant is one tough customer. It grows like a weed in summer with high temperatures, does not sulk in winter and needs very little humidity. I actually grew a few in my garden in full sun, and they thrived!
