    ok I was just looking at Bob Z's website and trying to distinguis between ventrata and alata plants. From what I see the peristoma of Alata is round and the opening is round where as Ventrata flairs out to points on the sides of the opening. Is this a good way to tell them apart? Since both plants look vary similar and many people sell Ventrata as alata. Thanks for any and all help.

    I have both plants.My N.ventrata came from a giveaway here on the forum,and my N.alata(Female,it was in bloom) came from a cutting from a HUGE plant in a greenhouse that sells african violets.My plants need to get bigger before I'll be able to tell the differences.I hope my N.alata is really N.alata!Sorry Josh,all that and I still didn't help you!

    N. ventrata all look bulbous on the bottom, and they narrow the closer you get to the peristome. they can be solid red or half red half green/pink. N. alata comes in many different colors.

    thats what ive used . the persimtone comes from the ventricosa side
    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer
