    Well, my two N. ventrata plants have gotten too big for my growth chamber. Since I don't have another place to grow them, I decided to cut them back. I have been stalling on cutting them off because they are producing new pitchers for the first time in about 5 months. It was sad to see the undeveloped pitchers get tossed.

    One nice thing is that the once that were not cut off are much larger than the first set the plant had on it when purchased. Although I am somewhat sad to have cut the plant, I will have many cuttings that will hopefully root over the next 3 months.

    The leaves on my N. ventrata are 8-9 inches. The pitchers are currently just over 6" tall.

    Here are the plants before I cut them back.



    In the lower right hand corner you can see a 3" pot of an unknown nepenthes. The N. ventrata are in 8 inch hanging pots.

    If it will get more light it will have little red spots on it. I sort of looks like what I have. And I don't know what it is either. I posted a picture unknow nep you will find on the 2 or 3 page of the Nepenthes discussion. My nep have thorns growing onthere lids to. I think it is a hybrid. But the leafs on mine are different.
