    This may be a dumb question, but are the two rosettes definitely coming from the same plant? Because if the supplier stuffed a ventrata and a ventricosa together into one pot that would definitely complicate things...

    One other thing I notice about ventricosa... grows more compactly and a little more slowly than my ventrata.

    But dang these things are variable. My plants have changed colour rather drastically twice... once when I brought them home (outside) from the store, and again when they went under the fluorescents in fall. Ventricosa went from very half red/half green pitchers to all-over reddish pitchers... ventrata did the exact opposite.

    Those 2 plants are from 2 cuttings of the same stem that I stuck side by side. I am hope we can narrow it down further to more then a 50/50 guess [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    I vote for N. x ventrata. The leaves look very close. I'd say it's still just juvenile, give it some time to "spread it's wings"

    I must be in agreement here, N. Ventrata. However, one of those pitchers is pretty hefty, left side.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
