    wow suzanne thats nice@! and all the others too, i am getting pissed at mine cus its producing pitchers like half a inch of less big, i am geting so mad, what conditions do you guys keep em in? on catalanis ********.com he sayd with ventrosica it can be as a low lander but during summer it will refuse to pitcher resembling a sumer dormancy, the temps are like 80-90 in the day, like 80% humidity or abovre always
    and at night it gets quite cool, about 70-80 at night

    low 70's

    i just cant under stand, its in a 6" hanging pot with the wood space woos space, its making leavs but the pitchers are so #### small

    tuyen, try the liquid you used for your rajah, i think that would make it grow faster

    other than that i think super thrive
    mine wont produce pitchers like that, maybe cus its stil a youngster, but when i got it, it had like 1" tall pitchers, then they died i am guessing from shock in shipping, ever since then it has been small pitchers

    hey Suzanne, i showed my mom your picture, she said "Ayyy, que lindo"

    which means ohhh my gosh, how pretty!

    i told her i have the same type, but its a baby from pft.com, and she said well proly it dosnt look like yours cus its about a year old, and i told her its a year and a half or 2, hehe, she liked alot how you set it up in your round terrarium

    My Ventricosa is grown under:

    Humidity- always hihg, not sure exactly but i'd say around 80-100% usually.

    Temp- Grown as an interremdiate-highlander

    Soil- Sphagnum

    Feeding- whenver it looks hungry.

    Light- Direct sun,part sun.
