Well, I had never been a huge fan of Ventrata, but, as a graduation gift my girlfriend surprised me with this guy/gal. She picked it up at a local nursery, and it looks rather good as such. It's really really big, with a bunch of growth points, etc. Not to mention a bunch of pitchers. What a surprise, and what a great new addition to my collection. It is enjoying it here outdoors in northern Ohio, just .5 miles away from lake erie. I've been bringing it indoors at night time, since its been dropping into the low 50's, but soon I should be able to leave it out all the time. Here's some pics.
