    Are you unhappy with your plant? You seem to compare plants and get dissapointed when you see plants bigger than your own. But if you really want a photo i'll post it tomorrow.

    My N.Ventricosa "Red" with the largest pitcher (on the right in the first and in my hand in the 2nd picture) is 5 inches tall.



    5 inch tall pitcher, 1 1/2 inches wide.

    Nep G: Have you measured the pitcher? Would you mind taking a picture with a ruler next to the pitcher? I'm trying to figure out the scale. When I just look at the picture, I think mentally 3". But when I try and estimate it inch-by-inch, I do get about 5". Anyway, I would appreciate it if you wouldn't mind.

    Thanks Nep G.

    Here are a few of my ventricosas (I have a bunch, I'm a big fan)

    This is my PFT ventricosa. Its grown quite a bit since I purchased it.

    This is my youngest ventricosa. Its for Tuyen to compare to his plant. (I'm assuming yours is young also). Sorry the pic is blurry, its difficult to get my camera to focus under artificial light/

    This is my Ventricosa red. The pitchers have been getting slightly smaller and less colored since the first pitcher, so I am trying to provide it with better conditions.

    That's all that I feel like sharing.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well this is on another post but here it is again...

    My plant is a bit over a year old (since I've had it). It was only about 1" wide when I got it...now it fills a 10" round terrarium. Newer pitchers are about 2+ inches tall.
