    It is most likely a lowland hybrid so put it in a room temp or 60-80F area and it should be fine.

    My gublers is producing 4inch pitchers now and is living is a terrarium. It seems it would not produce ptichers if grown on windowsill for me. Mine has large pitchers with spikes wings, red/white lip and red spotted green ptichers.

    NG, like I said, I have no idea what these are. They don't look like any X Judith Finns I've seen in photos but since it's sold simply as "Nepenthes" (by the Little Pot of Horrors company) it's parentage is always up for grabs. But just going by pics of spathulata in books and so forth that's what the pitchers look like (only much smaller of course) so it has plenty time to evolve into something that looks very different in a year or two.
    And personally, on looks of the pitchers, I hope it does!

    I had no intention to slam you but I was just saying, It is like finding a Campanulata in a Home Depot or a Drugstore. But if it matches a picture and description then it could be a long shot but a seed could have slipped into a TC jar and popped up as a Spathulata! If it is I will drink out of an S.Purp urea.

    The company that produces the Little Pot of Horrors and the Botanical Wonders line is near a company that mass produces nepenthes by tc. While the tc company keeps their plants labelled, the Botanical Wonders/LPOH company doesn't bother. There are only a few options as far as what these plants are: ventricosa red, alata/ventrata (the tc company has 3 clones, only one of which is true alata), xJudith Finn, mixta superba. Botanical Wonders/LPOH also has some access to coccinea and a few other very common plants, like gracilis, that are easier to identify. These are the only possibilities to consider when trying to identify them. Remember, too, that if you plant to propogate by cutting or by producing seed, it isn't wise to attempt a guess at an unknown nepenthes. Tag the plant as LPOH or Botanical Wonders, but leave it as unidentified. If you pass your plant along by propogating it, you'll only add to the confusion. Oz

    Great info OZ, how did you ever find that out? And a thing about these "gubler" plants, they do pretty good in terrariums so even though you dont noe the species or parentage, it will make a cool looking plant (hopefully saved from some nursery, etc)!!!

    Who produces these LPOH/Botanical Wonders plants? Does the parent company have a website? (asking in hopes they'd have some photos on there) I searched on LPOH and only came up with some posts of people asking about em.
