    My new and first nep!

    Well, I went to Lowes to find death cubes and there weren't, but I found rooting (same as rootone, the lady said they might have changed names, it's still a powder though), and a bottle of superthrive. I asked to go to the local nursery to see what they had for CPs and I found this big pot-o-neps (there's like 6 or 7 plants in one and it was the smallest) that needs an ID.
    Here's a pitcutre of the whole thing (no flash):

    Here are it's pitchers (flash except the baby pitcher forming between two leaves and the spikey thing):






    The leaves (flash)

    Too big for the tank, so I have it at the window (no flash)

    Yeah, I think so, too, after seeing Cindy's thread.

    Jeez, nice find. I've visited all kinds of nurseries round these parts, including orchid nurseries, and have never seen anything other than the usual cubes of death. Enjoy your ventrata, it'll be easy to care for.

    Actually, ventricosa and alata are the parents.

    You are fortunate. There aren't many nurseries near where i live, and most of their CP (if any) are poorly taken care of. When i found my ventrata, it was on the brink of death, the soil was bone dry, it had received little to no sun light, half of it's pitchers were shriveled up, and when i took it back home with me, it was in shock and it didn't grow for 2 weeks. I bought mine last july at home depot. I wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to kill the plants instead of selling them. Since then my ventrata quadrupled in size but has only made 2 pitchers.
