I just picked up another ventrata from my OS meating and this sucker is HUGE. I want to trim it up a little. It has about Multiple growth points to it, and it flowered on about 6 stems too. Its a monster. I took about 3 or 4 cuttings from it as soon as I got it from growth points that haven't flowered, but I was wondering if taking a cutting from a growth point that has a spent flower stalk will take or not. I was also going to try some vine cuttings too. This is an extra plant, and picked up just for trade stock. 2 dallar raffle ticket for a monster ventrata why not. There isn;t many pitchers on it, but I know its a ventrata because the one I have is from the same plant.
Now this is kinda strange too. I know that nepenthes are either male or female. This was the only nepenthes this lady owned. She is a friend of mine. And this ventrata flowered, and now it looks like its full of seed capsules. I know it couldn;t have selfed could it? I thought they were either male or female. So they shouldn'tt have been able to self to make capsules right? Some areas you can tell the flowers just witheres and dropped like I would have suspected, but others I swear look like seed pods. I need to take a picture and post, but for now just take my word its large. I have seen larger leaves on a ventrata in pictures, but this thing filled a rectangle laundry basket, and is over flowing its 12" hanging pot. Thanks for any help.
