General Description
 
This fantastic, eye-catching cross bears orange, speckled, tubby pitchers with the shape of N. gymnaphora with the broad, olive-purple peristome of N. spathulata. Lower pitchers have prominent yellow wings. The green foliage is quite complimentary, broad and hefty as are the traps.

So far one of my favorites July 6, 2017

By the end of the day I received it,  I already saw new growth with the tendril. It didn't even want to waste time with stress before it started growing...and still healthy!
