    Nepenthes ventricosa...everybody needs one! (Winner Jm82792 $15)

    New to CPs? Don't have any neps? Well here is your chance! Up on the auction block is a N. ventricosa--the reliable and adaptable highland nep that grows well in lowland conditions. This plant was also purchased at a local greenhouse.

    It is approximately 6" tall and has 3 open 3" pitchers measuring 3" in height. It is growing in a 2 inch pot and is probably ready to be repotted.

    I WILL be posting a pic but since I left my memory card at the office last nite, it will probably be tomorrow before I can get this done. So check back to get a gander at the offering.

    I will pay shipping; US bidders only. And let's start bidding off at the basic TWO DOLLAH ($2).

    ---------------
    Alrighty...got the photo. Here is N. ventricosa in harmony with Buddha.

    Can they be grown in low humidity?
    Can they be grown outside in the summer/
    has it been acclimated to lots of sun?
    I used to have one in Hawaii I got it acclimated
    to Full sun but it took time,the only reason
    I am asking is I don't have a good lighting setup
    right now but by the time it is winter I will have one.

    I can't tell you much about its history as I just bought this from a greenhouse (so I would assume it went from one greenhouse into another. I have put it in my nep tank for now so its in a humid and bright environment. My own ventricosa has grown both in a tank and outside of a tank and has done well in both situations. I have not grown it outdoors in the sun.
