    VERY nice! You're lucky-I picked up a huge clump of ventricosa recently and there was not a single live pitcher on it. Still isn't a pitcher to be found. I only know it is a ventricosa because I emailed the nursery that does the wholesaling (their name was on a tag) and asked which it was and they say that they only sell ventricosas.

    Just wait 'til that first flower stalk-very cool when it finally happens. Congrats!

    Hey LG, I think you can still request a Ventrata at Armstrong's and they come with a bunch of very healthy pitchers. I had to ask the manager though.

    Interesting. Which Armstrong's did you get yours at? What size and how much did you pay?

    Talking :)

    Congrats on your new nep! It looks just like my first one. I got mine at a nursery too...one day while shopping I was getting ready to check out and when I got up to the register it was hanging overhead. I almost didn't see it, but when I did, I couldn't take my eyes off of it. Now, it is almost 4 feet tall when the 2 tendrills are picked up. And I can't really move it cause it has wound it's pitchers around my grow rack and even on some other plants, lol. Anyways, this is just the beginning for you. One nep is never enough . Enjoy!

    As for the ID, when it's a ventrata-group plant as this one seems to be, I always like to mention "Deroose's Alata," which is a plant that was distributed labeled as though it were N. alata but was actually N. alata x ( alata x ventricosa ) and simply named after the mother plant. Looks like your typical N. x. ventrata but shows more of the alata traits.

    I think you're right seedjar, it came with a little tag and a picture of a well grown N. x ventrata, but it was weird because it had N. alata's speckles, so it might as well be N. alata x ( alata x ventricosa ).
