    Hello all,
    I was looking at the pics of N. Ventricosa that some people own on the internet and looking at mine, different looking. I mean the there is an one centimeter gap between each leaf while lookig at other there isn't any gap; it's all compact? I give this guy 9 hrs of light per day. What's wrong or is this normal?

    Has it been producing large pitchers? If the pitchers are small it might be that the sphagnum (or whatever else it's growing in) has built up minerals. I had noticably larger space between each leaf as well as smaller pitchers on my N.ventricosa when they are in the same pot for a few years. They quickly stayed more compact and the pitchers were much larger right away after repotting.

    The distance between the leafes do elongate when Nepenthes do leave the rosette growing state and do start to climb. N. ventricosa does this normally aged about two years. When the distance elongates at small plants, light levels are propably to low.
