    that looks nothing like a ventrata or a coccinea.

    Judging from leaf shape and way it is unfurling, tendril attachment/length, and the size/position of the wings, thats judith finn.

    The pitcher shape is a bit off, but hey, neps have polymorphic pitchers (especiallyw ehn that young)

    but its a judith finn hands down

    I'm most certain I had one just like this when she was a baby...I just can't remember well which was... It's certainly not a x coccinea ( had one and it happened to be my favorite...mum killed it...), but Imma' have to go with x Judith Finn or x Ventrata. This is also a wild guess...but it reminds me of a truncata in some way...

    Thanks guys!

    After doing some Google image seaches; my little Nep does look like the Judith Finns I've seen online.

    Gonna re-pot that little scamp this weekend.......

    What are some of your favorite Nep soil recipes?? I've read a lot on CP soils lately. What bark is used in Nep soils? Is bark really necessary for Neps?? Is it mixed in or layered at the bottom of the pot for drainage??

    Thanx!

    The bark is often mixed into the mix. Orchid bark is quite good. But if you can get your hands on some cork its even better IMO because its airy and not as heavy as other kind of bark.
    A mix of Peat/perlit (50/50) is good. (you can change the perlit against some bark,clay pellets everything really which gives the soil some airiation and drainage.)
    Dont use sand as its to dense.
    Or you can just go with pure live spaghnum or LFS.

    Glider: small N.ventratas often has small wings.
    But the leaves are a little fuzzy so its probably not a ventrata.

    I have some funky mix of peat, perlite, vermiculite, LFS, orchid bark and live moss. Sand has been known to sneak in on occasion as well. It isn't quite the "deluxe" recipe that is in the "Savage Garden" but it is made up of many of the same ingredients. The ratios vary.
