    Um, I see there are lots of questions. Idk where to get a cutting, I just found a pic of it, I'm not sure if it's a mutation or if it has no Chlorophyll, Idk if it's ventricosa 'blanco' but I think that's what it said, and Idk if it stays like that because of high light.

    The white ventricosa is said to be the "true" ventricosa by some, with the red/common one being some sort of introgressed hybrid. Ergo, it's not a mutation, just the way the plant is. I'm not sure if there's no chlorophyll, but the pitchers don't contribute too much to photosynthesis anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
    You can only get a cutting from people that have had the porcelain/white form since it was imported in the 70s, or people that got a cutting from that, i.e.: you need friends in high places, and even then it'll probably be hard to find.

    Oh and btw, it's not ventricosa "blanco", its ventricosa [Blanco].
    Blanco is not a varietal form...it's the botanist that described the species. Careful saying things like that and giving plants names that don't exist. It easily leads to confusion. The accepted (but my no means official) name of the form is ventricosa "porcelain".
