The hybrid used to be called petiolata x truncata. Now it is mindanaoensis x truncata.
This is because for a long while what was in cultivation as petiolata was not really petiolata. It was a plant which is now called mindanoensis which is totally different. The real petiolata is an intermediate-highlander and looks quite alot nicer IMO.
Here is Clyde Bramblett's plant of this supposed natural hybrid labelled petiolata x truncata he obtained decades ago from the Philippines. Michelle shot this in Aug. 2004, and don't know where it is today...it may still be there. Manny Herrera stands in the background. Frankly, we think this is mindanaoensis x truncata. These two species do share habitats, so nat. hybrids between the two is very likely.
Firefly is correct. Years ago when these natural hybrids were coming from the Philippines, there was some confusion as to what was what, and mindanaoensis was not a named species--some considered it an alata and others mistakenly figured it to be petiolata (as per Danser's Monograph). We're looking at a time frame of the late 1970's into the early '80's and the Nepenthes world was very different-no internet. Most of these plants come from low to mid elevations, making the natural hybrids among truncata, alata and mindanaoensis. I have yet to see a picture of a natural hybrid of petiolata x truncata. True petiolata was only recently re-discovered ( by our very own picrophyll) at high altitudes. BE. has them now in cultivation. Trent

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
