    Nepenthes that may be mislabeled

    I picked up a few Nepenthes for my 6th grade science classroom. I was told that these were all warm growing species or hybrids, which is what I need.

    Pict 1 and 2 were labeled N. ventricosa - Can someone confirm.

    Pict 3 and 4 were labeled N. Judith Finn - Not sure if this is true.

    Pict 5 and 6 were completely mislabeled as not even Nepenthes, but I think they are the same as the ones labeled N. Judith Finn

    Pict 7 and 8 - No label but was told it was a N. maxima hybrid.

    The person that I was picking them up from did not actually know much about these. I spoke with someone else on the phone before I went to the greenhouse to get these. I can't have any shipped to me know since our day temps are 110F + right now.

    Thanks for the help identifying these.

    Pics 1,2,7, and 8 - N. ventricosa

    Pics 3,5, and 6 - N. 'Judith Finn'

    Pic 4 - N. 'Judith Finn' or N. sanguinea, probably the former based on the leaves.

    Wow. That is impressive. Fixing labels now.

    I believe that N. ventricosa was recommended to me for warm growing.
    Is N. 'Judith Finn' warm growing as well?

    Thanks

    I have good lowland/intermediate conditions right now, and ventricosas are notorious for growing very well in almost any conditions that aren't too extreme. I also grow a 'Judith Finn' and have found that it is a very good, hardy grower, just slow compared to some of my other Neps. It should do fine in warm conditions, mine does.
