    Now for my Ventricosa Red, this guys my first Nep & I love this beauty. Got it at a nursery in the garden district of SF when I lived there as a little plant with abuncha big pitchersfor it's size, since then I brought it back to LI, then to Brooklyn and now at my place on LI by Jones Beach.

    Now this here's a plant with the same cross as a Dyeriana I got from a Hawaiian grower, I recently picked up an unrooted cutting of a clone of the original Dyeriana so it will be interesting to see how these two grow side-by-side over time...

    Checkit:

    Big Bud


    Newly Opened


    Corona Comparison


    Darker


    Three Stoodges


    Deep Red Peristome


    And another shot of the three guys together...


    As you can see, the peristomes on this plant are a lot redder than the typical Dyeriana, like a deep red striping. I look forward to seeing what the uppers end up looking like...

    Thanks for sharing.

    Lights are the regular-ol' Home Depot cheap-o's, the T-8 fixtures with cool lights. Two fixtures of 2 bulbs each set high in the grow chamber with white shower curtains and white tablecloth and white plastic platforms to reflect alotta light around in there.
    I forgot the photoperiod, but it's on the high side for Neps, like 13 hrs or sumethin...
    Glad ya liked the pics!

    I just realized some of these pictures are Gi-normous! Anyone know how I can reduce them for easier viewing?
