    My plant grew back after it got frosted. It grew back into a huge mature plant in a matter of months. I grow a large red form labled N. burkei. I've found that plants labled N.burkei are often larger and more vigourous than the typical form.

    i think burkei is just a var. or ssp.

    i grow ventricosa in lowland conditions, i have two. one smaller one and one larger one that i just got. the large one is from a cutting and the smaller one is from TC. plants grown from TC. are slower than a line at the DMV compared to plants grown from cuttings, in this case atleast. both plants are doing great and they are the only highlanders with the exception of copelandii that i grow in my terrarium. conditions are 85-88 during the day (usually 87) , low-mid 70's at night. 80% + at all times.

    Im pretty sure you can grow your ventrosica in your conditions, im no sure where you live but im in south florida and my ventrosica is aproaching 2 feet tall, it had 2 basal shoots but i atempted to grow 1, it was a very small baby and it died, the other one i left with the mother is growing very healthy, the mother is starting to produce upper pitchers it seems, they are about 1-2" and are floating around everywhere, it looks very cool
