    Nice plants! I think the reason behind the small leaves on your N. ventricosa is due to it receiving a lot of light. I originally had mine outside and it got a "tan," and the first leaf it put out was significantly smaller than the last. Upon moving the ventricosa inside, in an east window sill, the leaves started getting bigger. Until now I thought it was shock that made my ventricosa produce the small leaves.

    I'm pretty sure nepenthes want all the light they can get, and they wouldn't shrink the size of their leaves under full sun.

    Also, the "tan" you're seeing is probably just sunburn.


    Thanks for sharing your photos with us, Capensis!

    That might be why. D. capensis 'red' is supposed to have a red hue or can be solid red/maroon with intense light and it naturally makes red tentacles. Regular typicals or narrowleaves, I'm not so sure about. I just don't get how mine aren't coloring up.
