    I've fallen in love with pictures on this board and elsewhere online. My question is, are they good for a beginner? I've read online that they are pretty tough. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Well, I think you're going to find differing opinions on this hybrid. For me, it's a pain in the patooty. It grew fine at first, but then it decided to go into suspeded annimation on me. I am only now getting my first pitcher in over a year.

    My judith finn took forever to begin pitchering, but once I got it into lowland-ish conditions (the humidity isn't very good and the temp isn't stable, but it is pretty warm in the day and there's plenty of light) it started to take off. It's now one of my most productive plants. It's a very beautiful hybrid, when it wants to be. If you want a sure shot, this probably isn't the right plant for you, but if you have success with lowlanders or intermediates, it's worth a try.

    huh, lowland, eh?
    No wonder. I always thought this plant was a hybrid of highland species....Maybe that explains my difficulties with it.
    Food for thought....and experiment!

    Er, I think it's a lowland hybrid... it's got N. ampullaria and N. rafflesiana, I'm pretty sure.

    Uh... its parents are spathulata x veitchii. That's highland, but mine grows perfeclty in intermediate conditions. It has put out three pitchers in a month and half. I'll have to put a pic up later.

    I'm sure it's not coccinea, yes, but I think I was remembering coccinea's parentage. :)
    I guess it's the vietchii that gives it lowland characteristics.
