I’ve been hoping to acquire this for a loooong time.

Nepenthes veitchii X spectabilis, Leilani clone. I recently acquired this variety from Jeremiah/Leilani Nepenthes. I’ve been waiting list for nearly a year, and now it’s here! My understanding is that this is the clone that Sam uses for breeding work at the nursery, and it is an exceptional cultivar. This is just its first small pitcher, so it’s barely a hint of the magic yet to come.

And just for the sheer toothy delight of it, here’s a macro shot of the upper peristome of N. lowii X spectabilis.
