    Hey swords, I too have horrible luck with ventricosa. Supposedly easy but growing this well eludes me.

    Anyway, does the black peristome form actually get a black peristome? I've never seen a photo of one and it sounds intriguing.

    I'm fairly sure that it's called black peristome because the peristome on mature plants can turn purple rather than the normal red color of ventricosa
    Good Growing!

    Yeah, my ventricosa "black peristome" definitely doesn't have wings.

    There might be a couple different clones, but it seems to have a dark red/purple/black peristome, and lovely pale body
