    Young N. ventricosa plants produce pitchers with wings. As the plant matures, the wings will become less noticeable.

    Joe, not that I am aware of. There are some forms of N. x ventrata that are more "green" in coloration, but that may come from the alata parentage, but in N. ventricosa, there really isn't a "green" form.

    Guess it depends on your deffinition on color. You probably won't find an all dark grass green one. And are we considering peristome also or just pitcher body? Color also tends to change as pitchers age. They can also be affected by the environment they develope in. ie light level and temperature.

    Will just reiterate that N. ventricosa will have some wings as juvenile pitchers but they will quickly dissappear when the plant starts forming normal lower pitchers.

    anyway.. here is a 'green' one imo. It does get a little less green with age...

    Hey! That looks almost identical to the 'Toilet Bowl' cv. at the Frederik Meijer Gardens. Green early on, turning a deep purply red as time goes by.

    Hello everybody!!!!

    Tony, is this one in your picture a N. ventricosa It looks extraordinary!

    Wesley, I got these new plants from a friend on Florida. I am getting plants from other states or parts of the planet, outside Puerto Rico to ensure genes & characteristics variety on my colection.

    So, it is supossed that the wings will start to desappear with maturity. And the green on the pictchers depends on different elements? O.k.

    I have ones that are pinkish, others that are cream (it is like a blend of pink and green and then it looks cream) and green. The green ones seem to have several mature pitchers, so I guess they will be green ones. Or when you talk about maturity you refer about the plants and not to mature pitchers?

    Can you guys post pictures of yours so I can compare. I seem to be stucked between the possibility of having ventricosa or ventrata.

    Thanks...

    How do they look now? My ventricosa pitchers look significantly different. Mine are much more bulbuous not elongated and have no wings at all. Even on the 9 month old cuttings the little 1/2 " pitchers are tinted pink on top, have a much more hour glass shape, and possess no wings.
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    Emilia, forgot to reply to what you said.. anyway, no, that's not a ventricosa. Don't know what kind it is, only know it's not a ventricosa.
