    It doesn't look like judith finn, N x judith finn usually has heart shaped leaves, I think. I'm guessing it's ventrincosa. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I don't think so I still think it is a Judith Finn because N. Ventricosa leafs are usually more long then wide and the pitchers would be bigger on an N.Ventricosa is the leafs were that big. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It could be a N. Sanguinea x Judith Finn [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    N. x Judith Finn doesn't have heart shaped leaves, that's truncata. JF is a hybrid between N. spathulata X N. veitchii. The leaves on my older JF are wavy and wide (at the outside end where the tendril comes from) but not heart shaped. The top of the leaves are at first dark maroon in the older one and then turning to the normal green color when the leaf fully opens and he tendril begins to drop before pitcher bud inflation begins. On my smaller JF the leaf top is only slightly pink then turning to green and the leaves on the young one are not yet wavy.

    Here's a Judith Finn pitcher (apx 5") on my larger plant

    The newest pitchers are 6"+ but due to the big plant crawling across the substrate and clasping the pot they are burried halfway so you just see the tube and peristome and lid... I am going to repot this plant into a new container with a 20" diameter cork tube and see if it will climb like the veitchii parent does, it seems my plant wants to, I might as well capitalize on it!

    But like I said at first, you won't know til it produces larger and more colorful pitchers. Age of the plant does not always affect how your pitchers look, it depends very much upon light. I've had a cutting of a N. khasiana x N. ventricosa making colorful 5" pitchers, placed it in a dark spot and several months later the same plant is producing almost juvenile shape and colored pitchers and leaves again at the top of the stalk with the large ones at the bottom. Light is of utmost importance for bringing about the maturng of the pitchers shape and color. But be sure that the plant stays plenty moist or the pitchers won't form at all.

    If using a aquarium with fixed lid and only a few lights you can put your plants pot on an upsidedown plastic pot so it's closer to the light, then as it grows lower it by an inch or two by using smaller and smaller "stands". I would say a minimum of 4 40 watt tubes (160 watts total) and more if you can.

    Good luck! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
