    Is this x Judith Finn? The pitcher looks like others I have seen on the WWW, but the leafy portion looks too wide and truncate. Is the id correct? The pitcher (without lid or tendril) is about 9 inches long and the leafy portion is 10 long by 4 inches wide.

    Looks more like a straight N. spathulata to me.

    There isn't any N. truncata or N. veitchii that I can see...

    ps moving to the id forum

    The leaf does have a look of veitchii/truncata. I am not home to look at my spathulata, but I don't remember the leaf being like that. The pitcher looks awfully immature compared to the size of the leaf to be a true spathulata.
    Tony is more of an expert than I, though.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Doesn't look like any N. x Judith Finn that I've ever seen, although I wouldn't know what it actually would be.

    I bought the plant off eBay and then spent 2.5 years raising it. I already wrote the guy I bought it from, but the e-mail bounced saying the address is no good anymore. Oh well, it is a nice plant- just wish I knew the parentage. Guess I can toss the "Judith Finn" tag. I doubt that it is pure spathulata because I recall it only cost about $10.

    If you got it off ebay then it is most likely one of the mass produced Judith finns from agristarts. They have a clone which is green with a dark peristome and looks pretty much like N. spathulata.

    Next time try and give as much information as possible.. it really makes a big difference in trying to figure these puzzles out!
