    Travis,
    It is sitting in a south facing bay window along with some of my other CPs. The browned leaves are from earlier this summer. Too much sun, too quick, and too little water in the tray [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . It got sorta crispied.

    Enjoy. I have two huge ventrata and several smaller ventricosa. They are seemingly trouble free for nepenthes. They both catch more than their share of bugs in Florida. Based on checking pitchers some mornings when I mist, they are pigs sometimes.

    BigCarnovourKid is growing something that will soon eat him, I'm pretty sure. My ventricosa pitchers don't grow in that shape. I'd be careful around that plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Do you see the really nice red pitcher (top) about to open that appears to be facing us if you look at the bottom, but sideways at the top? Um, am I seeing that right?

    Thanks guys, but the plant deserves most of the credit. By all rights it should have gone to that CP home in the sky after getting fried this summer. I'm suprised that it pulled through this well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I don't have a digital camera otherwise I would show you my alata...I bought it from home Depo(a killing ground for Cp's and orchids) and it was all of three inches across....2 years later its 20 inches across and has just started putting out 2 new growth points form its base! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Just think of all the new picthers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Just think of all the new victims it will take.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ...just think of how I found it in that cursed Home Depo [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] dehydrated and cramped in a little 3 inch cup....
