    N. Ventricosa...

    My Latest Ventricosa pitcher has had some deformalitys... The latest pitcher has kind of like a Scar it looks like on the bottom of it. I really didnt think this was mutch of a problem till i noticed that the Top of the trap (the lid) was far smaller than the Pitchers Mouth...

    Hear are my growing conditions... Brightly lit window... Gets daily misting.... Next to my sanguinea. It also has 1 18'' light above it...about 6 inches away, Teperature stays around 70 degrees on average.

    The pitcher has prematuraly opend... is this bad.. will it still absorb nutrience?





    cheers

    you wouldnt have just recently gotten this plant? some neps will throw out odd and deformed pitchers while adjusting to new conditions, especially if light and humidity are significantly different. my ventrata does something similar whenever i move it to a new spot for the sirst one or 2 pitchers after the move

    The bud might have been damaged in a way you didn't notice too.
