Default Need help to indentify Ant Plant

Need help to identify this tuberous ant plant. The seller said it came from Cameron Highlands. The plant was growing in the seller's roadside stall for a year, which is in Cameron Highlands.

Is this H. formicarium? I was just wondering as the leaves seems to be more slender...

Here's a leaf of a H. formicarium plant that I got from Andy. Notice that it is rounder. Does different growing conditions affect how it looks?

It does not seem to be M. tuberosa as it has two branches and the tuber is smooth with bumps unlike M. tuberosa which has tiny thorns on its tuber.

One more. Is this an ant plant? The tubers grow on it's roots. If it is anybody knows what species is this? Can't seem to find any information or picture reference on the internet.

This is ant plant killer! Pachycentria sp. Most probably P. glauca.

Thanks Lim. At least now I know what to look for on the internet. Hope Andy or someone can help confirm with me that it is P. glauca.

How about the first plant I posted above?

Lim, What you mean by ant plant killer? Kills the plant literally?
