One has is rather tall and thin (about 8-10 ins) with a lid. This one
doesn't seem to be puting any new cups at the moment and maybe going
into dormancy. The existing cups dry at the tops and work its way
downwards. Otherwise seem robust enough without any evidence
of infection/crown rot. The other one is squatter and with wider mouths
but no lid and with some reddish brown markings towards the rim. Rather
like Nepenthes ampullaris. So far one new cup forming.
