|The photos in the Nepenthes alata entry need to be moved to an entry with a title of something like "Nepenthes Hybrids".|
The container plants found in nurseries are a complex of hybrids. Hard to track down if they have no cultivar name attached.
I have Nepenthes alata growing on the farm. It is an aggressive invasive weed, and kills native plants I will get photos of the true species for the database.

|This will have to be treated in the same way as the problem with the Anthurium andraeanus photos. Our entries have Latin botanical names, so we can't have an entry called "Nepenthes Hybrids." Hybrids without a cultivar name belong in the general entry for Nepenthes. I'll move the photos to that entry.|

|Thanks Zuzu! Sounds good.|
I'll get photos of Nepenthes alata soon. I forget if it is a male or female. Will tell next time it flowers. Luckily since I only have one gender it doesn't spread by seed. Still it is an aggressive grower and has strangled native tree ferns and other plants. I have to repeatedly cut it back to keep it under control.
