    How large can a Nepenthesx Judith Finn get? How long does it take to reach maximum size? Anyone have pictures?

    I have a judith finn, but it is a really slow grower. I have yet to see a pitcher exceed 2 inches. It is probably the conditions I have it in...

    any how, I hesitate to say how big it will get as I have no experience.. but I would guess around 6 inches or more for an adult specimen. You should just get one. They are pretty plants, even their juvenile pitchers are gorgeous.

    Given that it's parents are spathulata and vetchii I would guess it would get quite large, 10-12" pitcher when mature, maybe more.

    Yeah, I have four, and they are pretty slow. One has two inch pitchers, and they grow in a terrarium that gets pretty warm during the day and cooler at night. I heard Spathulata can mature in 2-3 years, but I dont know about Veittchi.

    Depends on your deffinition of mature. IE mature as in can flower or mature as in forming mature looking pitchers. Veitchii for me is pretty slow at gaining in size. x Judith Finn will get quite large eventually.

    same conditions as the rest of my tank... near 100% humidity, nightly mistings, lightly packed soil... generally it's in lowlands to intermediate conditions...
