    Sam I want to ask you where you got the idea of this plant having thorelii in it. Don't go throwing out positive IDs unless there is more supporting evidence to say it is that. It looks like judith finn to me for the following reasons: leaf attachment, leaf shape, and tendril. The pitcher also looks like a young judith finn, or maybe one that is just a little weirded out. I see no evidence of thorelii in this plant what so ever. Judith finn is spathulata x veitchii, if that is indeed what this plant is.

    I would agree with the Judith Finn elements as well but I think there is a little more in it than that. Spathulata is there but the spotting makes me think something else crept in. Judith Finn x

    Edax: i see your point
    ive seen spotting on the inside of judith finn a couple times, it could be the way the light is hitting the pitcher causing the blotches to stand out a bit more? not sure.

    Right, no spots on the outside with Judith Finn, only on the inside. So it is possible that you saw the inside blotching from the sun on the opposite side of the plant. (Edit: which looks to be happening in this picture.)

    The outside is a definite pure green with pure red peristome, even when relatively young.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Thanks everyone for trying to help me figure this out. It's been fascinating, educational and a lot of fun reading the replies here.

    There is definitely blotching inside the pitcher as well as outside. There is another smaller, less mature pitcher that has almost no coloration on the outside, but blotching on the inside.

    If anyone thinks it would be useful, I can try to take a picture without the back lighting, and or one of the smaller pitcher.

    Thanks again

    Yeah just keep us updated Once it throws out a new pitcher try us again. To me it's strange that so much of the judith finn is present but with that tiny amount of outside spotting. I'd almost want to say JF x maxima or JF x miranda or something like that but I would expect more of the other parent to show up...

    EDIT: After looking at it again I'm leaning almost all the way to JF... I'd say take a pic with no back lighting and see how much splotching you get. It may just be a fluke.

    New Pics

    Hi Everyone

    Well here are some other pictures, I tried my best to not have any back lighting. The black blob near the top inside of the pitcher is a fly carcass. As you can see theer is splotching on the inside and outside of the pitcher. Thanks again to everyone that is trying to help me figure this out

    the pitcher shape made me think raff... the peristome doesn't match that of course... but that was the first thing I thought when I saw the photo...
