    Shoooot I need a girlfriend like that!

    N. ventrata is still a great hybrid. The fact that it's been around for ages and is fairly common doesn't make it any less so.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    "Growth Points?" huh?

    I just got a few of those too. They are awesome and easy to grow! The ventrata, not the girlfriend.

    Pimpin!

    I remember a few years ago when i was nice to my ventrata...good times. It was literaly a trelis plant! So cool!

    But now, its all about testing it! I tried planting it in all sorts of weird medias. MiracleGrow, worm castings, coffee grounds/osmocote...oh oh i just thought of this punch line: im pulling a **** cheney on 'em!

    Ha! Growing girlfriends who buy plants? Now that's the special touch!

    My first Neps were ventratas from a local dept. store for 25 cents each.
    I acclimated one to life in a tree with dappled sunlight straight through the leaves of the tree. It pitchered well even in the week or so we hit the 100's and also survived the first two nights of frost in autumn without losing a single leaf or pitcher. Two nights. If it doesn't freeze it won't hurt that plant in my experiences.

    Part of my problem is my woman buys me wonderful plants even though the house has been taken over!
    Good growing, Jack
