    I got my N. Ventricosa about two months ago from Pft and it seems to be doing well. Its second pitcher is 2 1/4 inches tall:). Mine is in 8-inch container and living in Pure Sphagnum Moss. I have it in a 10 gallon aquarium even checked to see if it had any liquid in the pitcher (used a flashlight). I am shocked :shocked: as it had a little pool for the insects to swim in - now that is high class living for the insects:).

    UKC,

    My ventricosa was/is also a windowsill plant (right now it is outside on the patiobecause it REALLY likes Atlanta.)

    Tim,

    My plant flowered after I had it for 2.5-3 years. It was around 24" across and 18" high at the time.

    I love how bomb proof this plant is and now mine is putting up 5 basal shoots so I will have a big ol' pot of ventricosa soon

    nepenthes ventricosa

    timbudtwo, Told you your gubler nep is ventricosa! Thats the first time I've ever seen a gubler nep thats not that unknown hybrid. Maybe they are starting to supply plants that are species? Or maybe it was a mistake?

    No mistake I'm sure. They supply different species to different areas.
