    I wish I knew more about the form of N. ampullaria that was used as the mother in this cross. It's becoming obvious which parent contributed to which feature:

    Ha!
    It's very cute though. I'd say, unless it was a 'red' Ventricosa, that the Ampullaria was 'red' form! Or 'spotted' form?
    Are you sure the Ampullaria was the mother? I heard seed Neps get 70% genes from mother, 30% from father, and it looks quite ventricosey

    Well I can't say for certainty since I didn't cross it myself; but, assuming the traditional labeling of mother x father and that I trust my source, yes. I would agree with your assessment of the coloration being from the N. ampullaria; but what form? Probably just a typical red form, since I would expect that the label would contain any special notations if it were "Burnei Red" or "Cantley's Red."

    nice, looks like ventricosa controls the shape of the pitcher, lid and I think the leave shape. I can sse the amp in the lips, color, wings, and uninflated pitcher.
