I have one and it looks similar to yours. Here's a link to my page www.nepenthesaroundthehouse.com/ncampanulataxveitchii.htm with a photo of it. I've been growing it outdoors only because of the size of the plant. It turned out to be a male. It has survived winter but definitely didn't like temps in the 30's. It's put up a few basal shoots now since the main growth stem hangs over the pot. So far it has been an easy grower that has tolerated highland conditions. I thought for sure it would be dead after winter.
Yup, Joel. Your pic is the only one I found and I even asked you for the permission to download it for reference a couple of years back when I bought the plant! Now I am hoping for newer pics from other growers. Hehe.
I was glad my pitcher turned out to be just like yours, except for the red in the peristome. Is your plant really large? Mine's only 5" across with two basal shoots and is doing well in lowland conditions.

I don't remember the email asking to use the photo. Absolutely if you want to. No problem. Thanks for asking. Yeah, it's one of the largest Neps I ever bought that wasn't labeled large. When I first got it I was stunned on the size and then bummed because the leaves look like a typical lowlander similar to bicalcarata. I didn't have room indoors to grow it. So it went outside in summer time. It did fine and even pitchered for me. Then it took a hit in winter time but survived. It has 2 basals now. So this guy is a pretty tough hybrid. I really thought it would die after all I've put it through. Seems to be a pretty good grower too. Where did you get yours?

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

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.
