    Yay for N. ventricosa! I haven't posted any pics in a while so thought I might jump in here and add a couple. Neat thing about N. ventricosa is the variety of colors as well as pitcher shapes.

    Squat form.. one of my favorites


    Purple black color form. Actually starts out very pale and slowly develops to this color over several weeks.


    And a new one that came out of a batch of seed grown red colored plants.

    O lol yeah.. the plants are watered from overhead sprinklers so they tend to fill up over time. If you look close at the third picture you can see a little line at around the half way point and the pitcher had only been fully open a week or so.
