    My ventricosa is one from **********. I think it is one of the "good clones" because at less than a year old it is making 1 3/4 in. pitchers. Every new pitcher that it makes is also bigger than the pitcher that grew before it. I hope it turns out to be like Spectabilis73's pitcher... crossed his fingers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Depending on what ventricosa plant somebody has, pitcher size can vary greatly. I have one variety that has produced pitchers larger than six inches tall and quite wide on lower pitchers. It depends on the plant.

    Right now mine are around 3 to 4 inches and that is eyeballing them. I will measure lator [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] . I purchased mine back in June 02 and the pitchers were only an 1 big at the time.

    Spectabilis,

    Eighty degrees for most highlanders(ventricosa is considered an internediate by some) should not be too bad of a problem, as long as you have the dip in temperature at night. I have heard Kota Kinabalu can get as warm as 100 F in the day at times. I'm sure Rob Cantley can enlighten us on that...
    But keep doing whatever your doing. That ventricosa looks great!

    Regards,

    Joe
