    I purchased this guy at the local hardware. At least it was labled as a Nepenthes... appears to come from Gublers Orchids.

    I would sure appreciate it if someone could field some ideas as to what it might be.

    It's been growing in this glass cloche for about 2 years now, seems to like the extreme humidity and no issues w/ the water standing at the bottom (that's small 'orchid bark' at the bottom of the jar).

    Thank you,

    - Mike

    I actually bought that same Nepenthes from Gubler's Orchids at a Home Depot this past summer. I would also like to know what species it is.

    Great looking plant by the way [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I like how you're growing it in that glass container.

    Thanks Mitch.

    I love the glass cloche, I would like to have more but it cost me a cool $54 at the local nursery! I believe it was intented for a violet or such. I only have to water the plant about once every two or three weeks... low maintenance for sure.

    BTW, I live up in Sacramento where the average summertime humidity is ~20% (at 95F). I was worried the plant would cook like so much deli food in the cloche, but it seems to be very happy. It gets about 3 hours of direct sun in the mornings.

    I have the same plant. It didn't seem to like it in the greenhouse so I put it outside with the highlanders. It's really happy now.

    I would love to post a picture of mine but I recently gave it unfavorable conditions and it died back quite a bit. It's very unhappy with me!

    Today I clipped off all the dead foliage, moved it to a new growing area, and sprayed it with fertilizer. Hopefully it'll bounce back...*crosses fingers*...

    So we've got a vote for N. Judith Finn. Anyone else? I posted a picture of mine back when I got it and I think the general concensus was N. maxima. Maybe I was misinformed...

    I am not sure what it is exactly but it is not N. 'Judith Finn'

    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    It's not N. Judith Finn. If I recall correctly Gublers has 3 different plants they produce. Looks like you have the unknow N. maxima hybrid.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
