    I dropped into a specialist nursery today to get some more pots. Being Winter they had little in the way of Nep stock but I found this one and before i knew it I was out the door a couple of $$ poorer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]



    Every leaf/tendril after that open pitcher is still viable so I'd expect them to all start swelling once in the glasshouse.

    Plant is about 40cm (16") tall.

    I already have this exact form of Vent in a slightly smaller plant, but could not resist it's size and vining.

    Aaron.

    Mannannan,
    I think that actually IS a ventricosa, like the title of the thread. The one pitcher sure looks like the pure species. Nice find, Aaron.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Are you kidding? Any new Nep is exciting and that one is a beauty and already climbing.
    I love ventricosa, it is so easy, it grows well anywhere. I grow two outside and they both
    bloomed this year. One male and one female. Lots of seed on the way. I'm hoping to get
    a red pitchering female to use in hybridising.
    A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine

    I agree, the pitcher in the pic is not a ventrata [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Sorry /Quensel
