    This N.ventricosa is my first attempt at growing neps. I bought it from PFT last March and it seems to be doing very well. All but two of the original pictures turned brown and died as was expected due to shipping and transplanting trauma. The 2.5" to 3" pitchers are all new ones.
    BTW, my wife has taken the liberty of renaming the genus "Nepenthes". They are now known as (at least in her mind) "Handydoodles". So I guess my plant is a "H.ventricosa"[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img].
    Tony, you answered a question for me about a rescued nep a couple of months ago that I had purchased from a garden center. The question was regarding an unknown nep that was in poor condition and had the growth tip broken off. That one now has three and maybe a fourth new growing tip. Once again, thanks for the advice.

    Thanks Tony and Wesser. I know the ventricosa is a beginners nep but everybody has to start somewhere. Since I aquired the one in the picture, I have purchased three more PFT neps (2 rafs and a gracillis) and all are doing great. The rafs have made a few new 1-1/2" fat purple spectacled pitchers. hehe. And now I know why they consider the gracillis to be a common weed in Borneo! It is scrambling nicely like it's supposed to do.

    Kevin, I'll get a picture of those two plants posted in a day or two. They are still small but they're growing and that's all that I ask them to do.
