    I wouldn't call that a "common" ventricosa.
    Looks AMAZING!

    Thanks for the kind words, ventricosa are a very beautiful and often under-appreciated plant

    xvart, there is actually another open pitcher that is in the rear and not shown in the pic, and there was another one in progress that was accidentally decapitated doh!

    Fantastic plant B! I love the midrib coloration. However, pitcher wise, I don't really like this species. lol! tooooo common IMO.

    Even if they are a little plain by comparison, I'm a fan of these guys. What they lack in decoration they make up for in gaping-mouthed carnivorous functionality. The hourglass shape and flared peristome sell me on them every time. Very nice plant, Av.

    Fantastic specimen with great color. How old is it, and what's the size of the plant and the pitchers?

    hmmmm guessing 18" span, maybe 6"+ pitchers... Ive had it a couple years I guess, it can grow very fast... Ive had to quit feeding it as often as I use too, running out of room for it.
