    N. ventricosa x aristolochiodes- 5 months of growth showing the monther's influence

    I got this plant 5 months ago. The speedy influence N. ventricosa (not that it's nearly as fast as N. ventricosa), and heat tolerance, are what I really like about this plant. It grew reasonably fast the warm summers (nights of 70 F), but now that it's winter you can see how the newer leaves are longer and hopefully, as the plant transitions to uppers, they won't lose too much of the color of the lowers. It's not growing faster, just a little larger. Pictures don't really do the palette of this plant justice. I highly recommend this plant to anyone who wants the look of N. aristolochioides, without the low temperature requirements. It's also very compact, which is good!

    This was taken in November of last year, about two months after I received it. I don't know what the temperatures in the terrarium are now, since my hygrometer/thermometer broke and I never bothered getting a new one. That's on my to-do list.





    Here they are now. For some reason, the pitchers look almost black in the terrarium but much lighter outside.




    New pitcher that just opened up yesterday, so it's still very light, but it's showing it's hump nicely.



    It's much faster than my expectations were, so I'm very pleased.

    Looks great Clint! Maybe it looks lighter in color outside because the sun is shining through it? Thanks for sharin.
