    They can get up to five inches in length once they are matured plants.

    Yeah eplants I know.

    I didn't mean that 5" is too long to be a Ventricosa.
    The point I was making was that N.Gracilis seems to have narrow pitchers. My plant produced a 4" long 2"wide pitchers recently before I cut the top off for a stem cutting. I said that my 2" tall pitchers get 1"wide easily because the width is the same as his pitcher and its less than half the length!!

    Statik, it all depends on where your plant is in producing it's pitchers. Mine is NEAR maturity and has shown much more maturistic features. Pointed peristome,larger pitchers, more seperated nodes,etc. I was at Tony Paroubek's yesturday and he has HUGE Ventricosa, pitchers about 5 inches tall that are about 2 inches wide. Nice plants he has.
    Parasuco, Truncata is terribly easy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Just give it room, cool,warm temps and nice humidity and it'll put on a show for ya. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    N. Truncata would be fine in a LARGE hanging pot. Like about 10 inches diameter and 1-2 feet deep. It would be cool to have it growing in a tree. Too bad I can't! darn NY! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You don't know how lucky you are! I bet your growing N.Bicalcarata outsie now with those conditions!

    Stefano,

    I have a small (3" or 4" diameter) truncata in a 8 inch wood basket next to my ventrata and it's doing well so far. I think that I might put it in something larger once I see it produce 12 inch pitchers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Ng,

    I don't think that anyone makes 10" diameter and 2' deep hanging baskets. Think about it, that pot would be more than 2 times deeper than it is wide! :o To get an idea of how big something like that would be, put two sheets of paper end to end. That would be almost as long as my arm! For reference, my 14" baskets are only 6" deep, and I think that that's more than enough for truncata. Don't worry too much though Ng, we all tend to exagerate vertical measurements. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You know that merrilliana pitcher that I was raving about on the pics thread? I measured it today with measuring tape and it barely measures 2 inches high! :o Doh! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Nobody seems to understand what I'm saying.. Oh well. NepG the pitcher you have in your hand looks much wider than 1" if it's 5" tall, maybe your ruler is broken. Nice plant no matter what though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    This is what I usually see when I see mature lower picthers on N. Ventricosa.

    FAT pitchers huh?

    Upper pitcher (but of dark peristome variety)


    I know upper pitchers are usually thinnner, but your plant isn't even that tall so I doubt it has upper pitchers unless its a stem cutting. The waist isn't that constricted on pitchers and the space between the nodes is too close to be vining yet.

    BTW, "maturistic" isn't a word. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
