    I do like the highly speckled varieties, but burkei stands out more to me, having more intense colors. They really curvy ventricosas are eye catching.

    That is a beautiful N. ventricosa you have there dvg! I am envious.

    I hope that my poor, neglected, abused and now pesticide laiden ventricosa can pull itself together and be half the plant that you have right there.

    I find N. ventricosa to be sort of like my first love. It's the first one to teach about Nepenthes, nectar and of losing a plant. But it never truly leaves, it comes back again. And each time you visit ventricosa, there is still that connection, always there, growing. Plus, when it combines with other species, like your new loves and relationships, it always sets the tone, and reminds you that it, not the others, came first.

    Sweet post dvg.

    "Always there growing" for who? I can't grow N. ventricosa to save my life...

    Most Neps are seemingly no problem but gimmie an N. ventricosa and apparently I will kill it within 6 months and maybe sooner. I don't know why, except unless it wants something between my HL tank and my LL tank temps, I can't imagine every single N. ventricosa I've had was diseased bad enough to slowly deform and die or out grow itself while other stuff lives on happily right next to it. The grass is always greener, I'm always envious of those Neps I can't grow and "common" as it is, it's not common for me, I suppose I'm the only one actually jealous of a well grown N. ventricosa! LOL

    Very nice dvg! I'm quite fond of this species, I have three ventricosas, and some ventricosa hybrids!


    I just love ventricosa, here's the latest pitcher on my biggest one.



    Thez, it looks like EP's N. ventricosa k.

    I have a couple of vents and I love them both. One of them grows on the windowsill with no problem at all, and the other under lights. So far, I actually like ventricosas better than my truncata black!
