    Yeah, swords made a similar topic to ID a plant from the same supplier, Little Pot of Horrors or something. Looked like N. x Judith Finn to me too.

    I don't know if all the Little Pot of Horrors Nepenthes are the same species (I bought 3 unknown Nepenthes of this company) but only one of mine is doing well in a lowland setup: 80 watts of flourescent light, 90-100% humidity. You can see a somewhat blurry photo of the red & maroon/purple pitcher at the post below called Wanna Play Guess the Species? (wish I had a good digital camera)

    kqntb4life, I would move your plant to an intermediate setup. (unheated terrarium would probably work). So if it is a highland then it will show better growth THEN you can adjust it's temperamental requirements. If we knew the cross obviosly it would be a snap to tell you the temperature range. So right now just shut your heat off or lower it to a range of 60-70F for an intermediate setup. If it is a vigorous grower now leave it in lowland conditions. It may be producing small pitchers as it is a small plant or is it large? More info please for my reply is appreciated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
