Nepenthes thorelii X N. truncata is a hybrid between two lowlanders. I grow it outdoors as a highlander because I grow my N. thorelii's outdoors and they do well. I purchased this plant from Cook's because Dean recommended it. I believe it is a hybrid from Exotica Plants. They seem to do a lot of hybridization with N. thorelii. My plant was a small cutting that has grown fine for me. I've seen bigger established plants available as well. I suspect it will be large due to the N. truncata in it. I haven't seen any adult photos of this plant yet to see what it will eventually look like. For right now, it seems pretty typical for a hybrid. Nothing extremely fancy about it. With time it may turn out to be more interesting than it is right now to me.
