Hello everybody. A friend of mine sent me this highlander, this was supposed to be a N. spathulata x aristolochioides or a N. (spathulata x aristolochioides) x truncata.
I just wanted you to take a look at this plant, as I'm not convinced it has something of spathulata nor truncata. Maybe the pitcher is not big enough, but what do you think?

It could be. Those species are so different, who knows what it will look like?

The peristome does have truncata-ish look to it...

I can also see why dave thinks its a bit truncata-ish, on the hand i wouldnt label it as anything other than unknown aristolchoides hybrid due to a lack of provenance. It could be anything.

It's getting harder for it to get an ID, now I think it could have something to do with N. ventricosa or even N. lowii, what do you think?
