    The cross of N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana produces N.hookeriana if i am not mistaken.
    And about judith finn- as long as you provide high humidity like all other nep's there is no reason it wont grow well.

    I find that Judith Finn from AgristartsII grows much better as a lowlander. In Hawaii, it grows rapidly and I believe that its due to the bright light and humidity. I have had four inch pitchers forming on plants in a four inch pot. Try growing them in a larger pot about six inch if you want faster growth. They grow rapidly but appreciate frequent liquid feed between heavy watering.

    IME it is a pain stakeingly slow growing plant that doesn`t grow pitchers very soon after arrival(I`ve had mine almost a year and none yet).

    cocinea is (ampularia x raflesiana)x mirablis (could be the reverse) if I`m not mistaken.

    Wow! I feel special cause it grows rapidly for me. The pitchers are enormous in comparison to plant/pitcher ratio.
    I also have the cross of N. spathulata x veitchii h/l from EP and that one is very slow. But the tc clone of JF is a fast grower for me, any way. I just repotted the remainder of the JF from 4 inch pots to larger hanging baskets.

    Since mine actually started growing (it was the last to resume growth of all the plants I aquired with it) I've had the same experience as Michael. The pitchers are just a hair shorter than the leaves themselves, noticably larger than any other Nep I have.
