Hi- I recently received an unidentified Nepenthes hybrid that may have originally come from Leilani Nepenthes. The pitcher shown is 8 inches tall. It is most likely a lower pitcher. The pitcher is green with red blotches, has a reddish-green peristome, and a red speckled orange lid. Its leaf span is about 12 inches. The leaf shape (short and wide) suggests that one of the parents is a Nepenthes truncata, but that's all I know.

Leilani Nepenthes Nursery has done a number of truncata hybrids with various N. alata mothers. It looks as if it's most likely one of those, but determining which one would be quite hard, and best done when you have photos of all stages of growth (lowers, intermediate, uppers).

I don't see any spathulata characteristics there at all. It's influence on pitcher shape in its progeny is usually quite conspicuous. I think Christian is likely correct in thinking it's an alata-truncata mix.
