    Once they get going, N. x Judith Finn seems to grow much larger with each leaf. After a little over a year, mine prodiced a 9" pitcher (right after a 5" one) and it has more forming now. The leaves have grown quite a bit larger even after the 9" pitcher, so I get a feeling it'll be a big plant once it's full grown. It has gotten a bit too big though, the leaves are huge, some more than a foot long.[/QUOTE]
    Wow--

    What are your growing conditions, IYDMMA?

    Yes what are the growing conditions for them?
    I've got 3 of these "probably J Finns" and I've got one in highland, one in intermediate and one in a heated lowland, all seem to be behaving about the same in their current size.

    here's what mine look like

    Swords if all of them look like that one then I can assure you that they are Judith Finns. I grow a Judith Finn which is a little bigger than the one in the picture and your plant is definately a Judith Finn. The pitchers on the plant once it is established will get much larger in a very short period of time. I personally grow mine in lowland conditions, which I probably need to change, but for the next few weeks I dont have much of a choice. They are highland to intermediate, but they are a sturdy hybrid that I doubt would mind being in lowland conditions much. Love the pictures.

    If a good digital camera wasn't as much as the 3000sq ft green house I want to buy I'd get one and have nicer close ups than these fuzzies cos this cheap Kodak has no macro as all. Well If I get Jurassic Gardens up and running I can hopefully buy a real killer digital camera!

    I'm growing it on a west facing windowsill (there's good humidity here thanks to lake Ontario). 80-95 degree days, 55-70 degree nights during the summer. It's been in the same spot for a little over a year, but it is in a 12" pot, with vermiculite/perlite/peat mix, so there should be a lot of room for roots. It's been getting a lot of bugs, and the smaller pitchers were fed a couple of crickets.
    I think the plant usually grows pretty big if you give it enough time.
    I wish I could post a picture, maybe in another month when my cousin gets a scanner.

    Ventricosa really gets that big? Mine is pitchering like crazy, but they are all about 2" or smaller.

    Ventricosa can put out pitchers bigger than 5" because mine has three 6" ones right now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
