    I will tell you this right now.

    It is not NOT x 'Judith Finn'.

    The leaves are not round at the end and...wait. Some of them are very similar to x 'Judith Finn'. This plant seems to be bad conditions to it's liking no offense, so it's hard to really tell what it is as some plants misform due to being shaded or not getting suffice humidity.

    But I guess it might be a x 'Judith Finn'.

    Huh...weird how I can go comeplete from being against the thought of it being one to being pretty sure it's one before even typing the post...

    Actually the reason it looks so bad is because of the soil it was in when I got it(it was not spaghnum), it also had hardly any moisture, and a lot of minerals from being watered with city water. The plant was in shock, and repotting it put it farther into shock, it took all summer for it to "cleanse" itself of the minerals, and to get accustomed to the growing conditions, which were bright sun versus the shade it was in when I got it.
    It is now accumilating to being grown indoors, where it is fairly warm, and the humidity in my room is about 60-70% or higher, I haven't used my hygrometer(sp) to check my room humidity.

    hmmm... my "N. ventricosa" from lowes looked exactly like that. I guess it wasn't N. ventricosa after all.

    You can see the wings in the image, and to the best of my knowledge, Ventricosas do not have wings, so there is no way that the plant you have is a ventricosa if it is just like mine. Also I have never seen Lowes selling anything but a ventricosa(but I could be mistaken).

    Ah! Juvenile ventricosa's DO have wings.
    Heres a pic of my latest ventricosa pitcher, the pitcher is about 1.5 inches long, the plant is about 4 inches in diameter. You can see whats left of the wings, which go away as the plant gets bigger. the smaller pitchers on my ventricosa are all green and have wings like the pitchers in your pics.

    Your plant looks identical to one of my plants, with the color and shape of the leaves, which I believe is a judith finn, but won't know for sure until it grows a bigger pitcher.
