    I'll start off by saying: Damn that's a big plant! I'm surprised you were able to snag such a huge specimen from a garden center. I actually just purchased a relatively big Nepenthes from a local garden center, but it's nowhere near as monstrous as yours!

    I honestly don't think that lighting is your problem. You bought the plant in the winter, and most Neps have a hard time pitchering throughout the winter months. All my Neps are just now starting to wake up with Spring's recent arrival. So I say keep the plant where it is and continue to keep it moist with distilled water. You'll start to see some pitcher production in the next month.

    If you live in the Bay area, I saw some nurseries with lots of ventratas that size. In fact, that one looks just like them.

    i still haven't been able to get it to pitcher. I think it needs more humidity. I am new to growing these plants. The tendrils off the end of the leaf grow then just dry out and turn brown before even thinking of pitchering. It gets 8-10 hours of sunlight a day and not too hot temps. I keep it watered well (not too much, but moist.

    Any ideas?

    anyone can give me some info, lots of sun in the day but no luck. I think humidity is to play, its only around 50-60% average where I live. Its a big plant but no luck. Who wants it? Anyone from vancouver BC to lend a hand?

    50-60% is plenty for N. Ventrata.. Define lots of sun. I am betting it needs more light.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
