    Well, someone told me it was a Ventrata. Any thoughts?

    It might be, but either way, it's the same care. Ventricosa and Alata are both really easy to grow and require the same conditions. Maybe some more experienced growers will be able to tell a difference, but ventricosa and ventrata look pretty similar at that size.

    Very unlikely that it's anything other than ventricosa. Almost all of the neps that size you find @ Lowes come from just 1 wholesale grower, and they only produce N. ventricosa & N. sanguinea. It's absolutely, 100% NOT lowii.

    The only domestically mass-produced ventrata that I know of are the huge ones you find in 6" white hanging baskets (labeled as N. alata.)

    Care is exactly what everyone has been saying.

    Wolfn: that's a compact fluorescent bulb, correct?

    It is a ventricosa. So yes.

    Just threw it into my terrarium. Seems to like it...its already growing a new leaf. Temps are 70-85, humidity is 58-70. I transplanted her into a bigger pot too. They had her in hard packed peat with LFS up top. There were no roots at all in the peat and it was 2/3 of the pot. It was like a block of compressed coco.

    Shes in LFS and perlite now. Hopefully the roots will take off.
