    Unhappy

    Hey everybody! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I was wondering how much time does it takes for a Judith Finn's pitcher to get coloration on its peristome after the pitcher is fully opened?

    Hey Stefano if you got your Judith Finn from the Little Pot of Horrors brand of Judith Finn it may do far better in highland conditions. Mine was from them and small when I got it. Occasionally a leaf or pitcehr would be weird looking (deformed) but when I moved it in with my highland plants it has grown large very quickly and never made a deformed leaf again.

    I purchased the plant as a 3" diameter pitcherless rosette in Jan 2002, moved to highland chamber in June 2002 when it was about 6" in diameter. Now in August 2003 it is 28" in diameter with 8" pitchers.

    In my highland conditions the pitchers & peristome on the J Finn take longer than a week to color up fully, more like 2 - 3 weeks.

    Hi Everyone,
    We have lots of them in our greenhouse, and they are a little fussy about the south Florida summer heat. There are several clones originating from Agristarts (a large wholesale TC outfit), and both parents are highland. It's a testament to hybrid vigor, because neither of the parents would tolerate the heat. We get beautiful deep red peristomes within one to two weeks after the trap has opened.
    If you are growing it in south Florida conditions, give it a little more shade during the summer. Just before sundown, we mist the Neps, putting a fine layer of dewdrops on their leaves. With the fan on, slow evaporation over the course of the night lowers leaf temps. They love it. By morning they are dry, but humidity is over 80 percent.

    Trent
