Nepenthes truncata X N. stenophylla is a hybrid between the lowlander N. truncata and the highlander N. stenophylla. This cross was originally made by Exotica Plants but purchased from Tristan's. There's a strong N. stenophylla influence on this particular hybrid. As the plant matures, the pitchers should get quite a bit larger from the N. truncata in it. I would suspect that this plant can be grown as a highlander or intermediate depending upon preference. Mine will be growing outdoors and treated as a highlander. The cutting appeared to have been made from a well established parent so I anticipate no troubles growing this hybrid. 

highlander / intermediate ( not a naturally occurring hybrid )

Cultivation: probably an easy grower in intermediate or highland conditions; both parent species are hardy and easy growers
Market availability: rooted cuttings; an older Exotica Plants offering from seed grown plants not available currently
Species variability: maybe some among the different seed grown hybrids
$ / size: moderate $25.00 and up for larger plants
Cuttings: none available for trade
