Ventrata is a blah plant. *It's like Ventricosa (which I happen to love for it's personality variablity), but more BLAH. *I do rather like my Judith Finn, I'm not really into hybrids, but this little plant has such a nice pastel color set that as an individual I like it (note it is an origenal cross from seed so other JFs will be a bit different from mine). *Probubly though, I would have to say I most dislike the species with a tendency to vine all over the place when the stem is still thin and small, I don't like trellises and I like my plants bushy... I also avoid hybrids, but I have 2 because with a tiney collection like mine I sure as heck aint gonna turn down free ones.... X edinensis is a nice hybrid though, it can grow in an average living room with out a whole lot of light and still make traps, which makes it nice.
