This is an extremely variable species, and in the last decades many varieties have been more or less officially named, like var. nivea, var. alata, var. gigantea and others. These varieties are nowadays considered  just mere forms. The best way to call these plants is then “white form”,“winged tendril form”, “giant form” etc. The so-called “elongate form” has been recently reinstated as N. hemsleyana.

Sex: batch

Notes: winged tendril form, sometimes sold as “var. alata”. While this varietal name has been officially published in 1990, it's now considered a synonym of N. rafflesiana. The plants used for the official description were collected in Sandakan (Sabah). Not all the N. rafflesiana plants coming from Sandakan are necessarily winged tendril forms, and winged tendril forms not always come from Sandakan. About 2 clones (many seedlings grew up without developing winged tendrils).
