Wonderful photos, Keith! Thanks for giving us another taste of your collection :-) I also have the tobaica X spectabilis cross (Grex name 'Trubalina', so I understand). Mine is quite new to me (4 moths or so) but has produced one nice pitcher with a beautiful waistline:
I am finding I have a special appreciation for Nepenthes that have a clearly defined waistline, like the boschiana hybrids. Endless enjoyment!

We have had a couple weeks of downpours and heavy winds. The winds kept catching my taller plants behind the garage and playing dominos with them. Not a game I like to play with my plants¡K. So bamboo and zip-ties became my friend¡K.. First the clean up and haircuts¡K
All tied together with bamboo and zip ties¡K Had 40+ MPH winds and no toppled plants ƒº
I was also able to get a couple of nice pictures in between rains this weekend¡K By far my favorite this week is N truncata x ephippiata
N bellii x ventricosa
N ventricosa x inermis
N ventricosa x glandulifera
N sibuyanensis x copelandii
N alata variegate from a very generous forum member; Thank You!!!
The plant in question is BE-3329 which BE's catalogue still list as N densiflora x truncata. However, it may very well be a robcantleyi cross; I do seem to remember reading that they had crossed it with densiflora....
I love the color no matter who the parents are.....
