    I wouldn't think you would find a bical growing that well in a nursery in finland, but I guess stranger things have happend.

    You know it does look similar to N xMiranda (maximia x (maxima x northiana)) as well. I don't recall what unopened pitchers on Miranda look like either. I gave mine away a few months ago.

    I see you just posted some photos. Yes, it does look like a N xMiranda that needs a little more light. But this is just a guess.

    I second that. I was about to say "maxima", but a max. mix is more likely; hybrids are the most popular at local nurseries.

    its a maxima or fusca hybrid. see the little spur on the end of the lid? very characteristic of the maxima family. but fuzz? thats usually a fusca thing and not maxima. looking at the leaves im going to say its something along the lines of fusca x veitchii.

    EDIT: looking at it more it could also be eymae x veitchii.

    The fuzz is also a characteristic of the Veitchii Family as well. It could be a Maxima x Veitchii Hybrid. You'll be able to tell more if the Pitchers start to get a wide Flared Peristome. Plus Veitchii pitchers get the more tubby characteristics to them as well.

    New photos!

    Peristome is turning red. Note that it doesnt have glands under its lid. Photos are taken yesterday.
