    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has ever ordered the N. Judith Finn from this site. The reason being is because I just did yesterday, and was wondering if they're hard to take care of. All advice would be appreciative since this is my first Nepenthes.
    Thanks

    I have a couple N. x Judith Finns. In addition to being a good looking nep, it also has a reputation for being easy to grow and tolerant of a variety of conditions. My two seem to do great in pretty much intermediate conditions. Give it light, good water (distillled, rain, r/o), and no extreme temperatures and it should do fine. Congrats! You picked a good one.

    I ordered one from this site. To be honest, it seemed a undercared for when it showed up, but they sent two to make up for it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] My first pitchers just opened up. Two on one plant and one on another. They are about two inches and the peristome is just starting to turn red.

    I'm growing them in semi-lowland conditions and they seem to like it. In fact the most recent pitcher was 50% larger than the last two, three inches. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    It's a fairly easy Nep to grow. As high humidity as you can get, fairly bright light, and you are ready to grow! I have heard that it can be grown both as a lowlander and as a highlander, so it's not very picky.

    Congrats on the purchase! You are well on your way to becoming a Nepenthaholic!

    Hi Peter,

    I haven't bought a Judith Finn from this site but I have grown several. One is about 80-90 cm in diameter with 20 cm pitchers. The others I traded away at smaller sizes.
    They are generally very easy to keep being a vigorous hybrid between N. spathulata x N. veitchii. Just don't keep it in lowland conditions as it likes a cooler night time temp (below 70*F). Mine was making deformed leaves in lowland conditions (Day: 85-95*F, Night 70-75*F) but moving to highland conditions (Day: 70-80*F, Night 50-60*F) cured it and the plant grew very quickly.

    I have two Judith Finns that I bought during the moving sale. They have not pitchered yet, but have been slowly adapting to their new home and have not declined. I have at least one new leaf on each plant and they seem to be recovering from the shipping nicely.

    I purchased a couple a few years ago from PFT. They are amazing plants! The pitcher production was a little slow, but each one had a measurable increase in pitcher size. If you can provide cool nights for this plant, I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.
