    N. ventricosa "Super Red"??

    There is a listing on eB*y right now for a selection of N. ventricosa the seller calls "Super Red", which I cannot find any references to on the Web. The seller doesn't give any meaningful info on the clone, its provenance, nor is there a photo of the pitchers. (apparently it doesn't have any at this time) Do any of you know anything about this clone, or is this just a case of manufactured hype to inflate the price? (Its not cheap!) If this has legitimate merit as an exceptional clone, I'd like to know more. Thanks.

    See: "Super Red"

    I saw this plant and was wondering the same thing. If you look under the leaves, there'a a pitcher tucked in there. Doesn't look very "Super Red" to me. I also find it strange that a pic of the pitcher isn't the highlight of the listing.

    I've never heard of it. One might think it is a claim to inflate the price but he is also throwing in a double growth point Cephalotus too... those are not cheap at all.

    I found it to be a very bizarre listing indeed.

    Lol I found it funny the photo was just a bunch of overgrown leaves. I'm willing to bet my ventricosa is redder than this "Super Red"... (ok just an excuse to post some photos)

    Probably auto corrected from "super rare".
