    My new [huge!] Ventrata

    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.

    I believe any Nepenthes that is large is a sight to see, regardless of how common it is. Looks great. Just wait until all those growth points take off. Then you'll have one like this.

    Feed it something large (like a frog or something). That's what large pitchers are for.

    Being outside, it'll catch tons of insects naturally on its own. The first few days I put my ventrata outside, it caught tons of wasps and other insects.

    It's still a bit chilly here for us to get our bugs out in full force yet, but I'd imagine it'll be real happy when things warm up and the critters come out.
