    And here's a little bonus for everyone: my ventrata and coccinea are having basal shoots and the ventrata is getting ready for some cuttings for trading! But there are only two basal shoots [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Here's a little pic of the ventrata's newest babies.

    Great pics! That shot of the immature pitcher in the middle looks more like an intermediate pitcher, because the tendril is connected to the side....

    Those look really nice...I like how they've all but lost their wings. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    How long are the climbing stems? Mine are still producing lowers and I'm wondering how much longer I'll have to wait!

    Hey Snowy Falcon:
    The stems are usually 5 or 6 inch. long, but the new one on the pic is over 8 inch. Besides the pitcher in the pic is 7 or 8 inch. too! It just keeps getting bigger and bigger! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ooook! I have a large Coccenia but what is the difference between a top pitcher and a lower. I'm sure it is not its' strike out average. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    I looked at your photos very carefully and for the life of me cannot determine the difference.
    Also, your's seems to have much deeper green leaves than mine and the pitchers are much more red. How much direct sun are you giving them? Are you spiking the water with Ron Rico? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    How are things in Puerto Rico?

    This clone of N. coccinea does not readily make upper pitchers. If you want uppers, try staking the vine upright so it grows tall, like a tomato plant. If you let the vine trail over the edge of the pot you'll get ground shoots and lowers. The uppers are more elongated and lack true wings.

    Trent are you saying my coccinea is a clone?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Oh my god! I've been raising a FREAK! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img] lol How can you tell?
    Lauderdale, the difference between an upper from a lower pitcher is very very simple: the lower pitchers tend to be, well, rounder and fat and may posses wings and the tendril is facing the front side of the pitcher; meanwhile, the upper pitchers are totally the opposite which means that it's longer and thinner and does not posses wings and the tendril is behind the pitcher. And if I'm wrong, well, I'm a monkey's uncle [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
