    Hi
    I often see photos of and references to the hybrid N. x judith finn. But is this species available outside the States, as I have never seen it listed on European or UK Nursery sites? And I want one!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    cheers

    This hybrid was made in the US and tissue cultured by one of the big pot plant producers. There are not many US companies that export, which is why your not seeing it in the UK. Particularly with all the large Dutch companies producing a range of inexpensive potplants. The cost to import a pot plant from US puts them out of the price range of the Dutch plants.

    Exotica also remade the cross and distributed seedlings a couple years ago.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    N. Spathulata X N. Veitchii are the two parents.
