    It's definitely a male, but it looks like a ventricosa to me.

    I made some ventricosa seed a couple years ago from some rather ordinary looking parents and what I have left looks more interesting than either parent. I'll try and post some pics tonight.

    This year I have some better looking parents I'm planning to cross:
    CSUF Clone (male):


    with

    EP Clone C


    Both parents get dark purple interiors to their pitchers.

    Here's what this female's flower spike looks like in bud:

    My bad, I meant to say ventricosa like earlier and missed it. This is actually the 1st nice pitcher it's put out in a couple years of abuse.

    I updated my previous pics to pics I took yesterday. Here are my small seed grown pitchers. These have survived my attempts (neglect) at growing dwarf Nepenthes and hopefully will start increasing in size again. I think they look pretty good for immature pitchers.
    This one is squat and tubby. I'm not sure what happenned to the ventricosa waist on it:


    This one looks more normal, but I like the round, toothy, yellow peristome and two-tone pitcher:


    Anyone else have some larger examples of the seed I distributed?

    So I heartily agree - let's get more seed grown ventricosas out there!

    Of course, there are some really good looking ventricosa hybrids out there too, like this ventricosa x TM:

    Nice pics !

    Just bumping this one. It seems I'm used to the Drosera, VFT and Utric flowers popping in a few days to a week after they unfurl. This male venticosa seems to take forever. I realize it's only getting morning sun and 70's ish temps but good grief boys lets get on with it ! If anyone is still interested I'll post here again when this thing finally pops.

    I don't know if mine is going to finish flowering or not. There really hasn't been much growth, but it has been much colder out and the sun has been avoiding my neighborhood so maybe it'll pick back up.
