There's something that's been bothering me lately regarding my Nepenthes ventricosa: *it's getting smaller. *Or at least, it doesn't seem to be getting any bigger. * The descriptions i read suggest that it gets much larger than my plant is, but in the year i've had the plant, it hasn't really increased in size.
Here's a photo journal of it.
June 2002 - right after i bought it. *Pitchers are obviously immature.
November 2002 - *Pitchers look more ventricosa-like, but aren't really any bigger.
January 2003 - Ditto, but with more leaves.
April 2003 - Pitchers look a bit more mature, but are still the same size. *If anything, the leaves seem a bit shorter!
Edit: June 2003 - And now today it looks even smaller and less lush to me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
So, what do ya'll think? *Am i not giving it the right conditions, or is it just as big as it's going to get?
