N. "Ile de France" (again)

Thanks, Ron, for posting a description of N. "Ile de France".
I haven't been able to find photographs of it anywhere, and
I haven't been able to look up the reference that Jan mentioned.

I don't know what an N. truncata pitcher looks like. Is it long
and cylindrical, or funnel shaped, or short and squat (etc.)?
In your opinion, is N. "Ile de France" fairly easy to grow? Is
it among the faster growing Nepenthes? What conditions do you
keep it in, lowland or highland?

Thanks in advance!
