Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

narrow waist, big hips? I see something similar with most of the ventricosa red clone especially when they are younger.
True Bugs really Suck
All my ventricosas go through this stage a couple times a year for some reason, where they do not show that signature skinny middle. But it is. This is one from a flat (which I potted up just before the picture) from my supplier that doesn't even deal with ventrata. And plus, I've had this flat quite some time now, and have seen it go through these stages. Even my ventricosa that was given to my by technoracer way before I even had this stock to sell goes through the same thing. I've talked to a few other growers over time and they have seen theirs throw out random pitchers like this as well, seems more common when grown in greenhouses where conditions constantly change.
You might just talk me into getting a vent, Andrew. A red one. And I'm not very fond of vents, LoL!
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
My next N. ventricosa that goes out tomorrow.
Thanks for sharing Kris =) If only I had the room to pot all of these into their own pots they could have been that by now. lol
