    IceDragon is right. Bloom Rite puts out Ventricosa as well ventrata and from this photo your plant very much looks like a Ventricosa.

    Those are arrows, not glass hehe.

    I got it at the grocery store (Star market) in the garden center area. I think its only a local store though. I was very surprised to see them there myself.

    Heres a link to a closer up view of the pitchers to see if its a ventr. Sorry its so big, but I really didn't feel like resizing it

    The 'wings' will go away as it ages. I just remembered when I brought my plant from bloom rite mine had 3 plants in the pot! They were all seperate though, one big one, a medium one and a tiny seedling about the size of a nickel. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow, the lid looks kind of ....funny. I see why they are saying a ventricosa, and it may be, but I would not really want to pinpoint it until it gets bigger. If it's ventricosa, it's definitely young as the wings are quite prominent.
    Regardless, it's a very healthy tc plant. If the price was good, I would have not thought twice about buying one. I would feel quite happy if I were you.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    aww man, I want it to be a ventrata! lol

    But yeah, even if I knew they were a Ventricosa I still would have bought them. So I guess its no real loss or anything. But it would be nice to have a different type, seems how if you guys are right, I'll have 3 ventricosas and no other types.

    Ah well, live and learn [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
