    Ah, well, whatever it is i'm happy to have it. Hope the pitchers get good and colorful for me. This plant staying healthy or not will be the determining factor in whether I get more or not. If it's easy to grow i'll get a couple more of them.

    Btw, theres only one good and healthy pitcher on it. Theres 3 altogether. One looks like its probably about to die, the other looks deformed(or not fully formed, again, inexperienced) and the other looks great.

    They look bad when you buy them direct from Lowes. However, give them a good growing spot and they will look stunning.

    This is mine growing under an ordinary desk lamp in my dorm room:

    Wow, that just grows under a normal desklight? How long do you have it on each day?

    No, there is no way that could be a lowii. It's definitely a ventricosa.

    I didn't think it looked like any of the Lowii pics I could find either but i'm a noob so what do I know. Thanks!

    What type of conditions does the ventricosa need? Can i treat it as a houseplant or does it need a terrarium? I've read that you can fertilize these once a month...is this true?

    Ventricosa is one of the easiest nepenthes to grow, so you won't need a terrarium, just a south-facing windowsill. Since you got in a death cube I suggest you slowly acclimate it to the lower humidity of your windowsill, but if you don't want to you can just put it straight on the windowsill and let it adapt on it's own. It might suffer a little, but eventually it'll get used to the lower humidity (that's what I do with my neps :P
